in this case, if ht_time is used at request time without
PerlOptions +GlobalRequest, then all calls to ht_time leak into pconf.
it is also unsafe to use pconf at request time with threaded MPMs.

i doubt anybody is using ht_time() at startup.  i think it would be best
to start out using Apache->request->pool here.  maybe adding this in instead of ModPerl::Util::default_pool():

sub default_pool {
    my $r = Apache->request;
    die "need to configure 'PerlOptions +GlobalRequest'" unless $r;
    return $r->pool;

after all, this function should only be used for compat wrappers.
