It shouldn't be a hook.  This should just be done with a pool cleanup.  Hooks
aren't the answer to every problem in the server.  Doing something after a
specific action, like the close of the connection should be done by registering
a pool cleanup.  Fix the bug that you can't register a cleanup within a cleanup,
and Jon's problem goes away completely, because he can use the cleanup
that he is already using.
