I'm not advocating this scenario as a real solution, but merely trying
to illustrate how the child-pool creation routines don't really have to
be in apr_thread_create(). The application using APR threads can do this
before calling apr_thread_create() or it can do it in it's worker_function.

Either way, it is better to leave it totally up to the application, no?
