Um, I actually never saw any such threads.  Where were they?

Anyway, there actually was a brief period of time about two years ago when
they were not allocated out of pools.  I was under the mistaken impression
that that was still the case, but apparently brianp reverted his own
commit about a week afterward for some reason I can no longer recall
(presumably it broke something and it was easier at the time to revert
than fix because a new release of httpd was pending).

Brian, do you remember what the deal was there?
