I have some use cases that just want a thread. Since no child-pool is
required in this case, it becomes unnecessary overhead (that is currently
broken, as the child-pool is only cleaned in apr_thread_exit() but that
whole thing is screwey).

So if apr threads didn't know anything about child-pools, then they
would just simply create a thread that called my worker_function().
I could pass in my opaque data to that worker_function(), and do
the child-pool creations and destruction right there. I just don't see
how child-pool creation MUST be in apr_thread_create()
