Maybe there's another way of discouraging those bugs?

Perhaps we should run the test suite under valgrind, with APR pool debugging
enabled, and clearing every scratch_pool parameter immediately after the call,
on a regular basis?  

(I mean: wherever we have 'f(foo, pool, pool);', convert that to
's = svn_pool_create(pool); f(foo, s, pool); svn_pool_destroy(s);', 
then run 'make svnserveautocheck THREADED=1' under valgrind.)
