I think the non-thread safety of pools requires that each
person/developer implement their own locking esp around areas
where they might not even understand that there is cross-thread
issues. Thinking about 1.6 and especially apr 2.0, it makes
one wonder when/if we should bite the bullet and add thread
safe pools in a canon and supported and opaque way instead of
the normal "hacks" around it...
