No... The whole point of having a subrequest pool is so that we can trash it
when the subrequest is done. If a request ran 1000 subrequests (it can
happen with a large directory processed by mod_autoindex), then you would
end up with a HUGE waste of memory in the request pool.

Passing a pool to setaside() should allow us to migrate a bucket from one
pool/lifetime (the subrequest) to another pool/lifetime (the request or the
connection depending on who does a setaside and where they want to put it).
