In my understanding r->pool lasts the duration of the request. As soon as the request is
finished the memory should be marked for cleanup.

Subject: Pool child
I have a question about the pool of the child r->pool.
I'm using apache 2.2 with prefork and I set MaxRequestsPerChild 0 (so a 
child should never dies).
When my handler starts, I alloc all my needed memory from r->pool.
When the handler finishes, the memory allocated from r->pool is free or not?
Because the child never dies, I'd like to know if I have to free 
something or not.
Best regards
