Yes, I think this is true.  One additional factor to be aware of - if
you have a pipe line scaled up by 3 (you have 3 instances of annotators
in the main pipe line, there will be 3 threads for this, plus an
additional thread for the collection reader, and one for the cas
consumer.  So to insure all of these are running that could be running
at one time, you would want to have a pool size of 5.
