OK, pooling is maybe a franglais (mix of French and English) term

By pooling, I mean the fact that expired sessionS have to be REGULARLY purge
(in opposed to a callback mechanism (IMHO,  the best solution ). This
callback would be called on ONE session expiration and would suppress it.
You would not have any purge latency with such a solution).
