well, possibly.. or one can create a *subpool* to control the scope of a
pool.   Eventually that whole function just needs to go away and be
replaced with an output filter once I figure how to get he data
transfers going through the filter chain.  Then this will be a
non-issue.  And it will allow me to do some more cool things like text
replacement, say, for welcome messages.. And to allow a bandwidth
control module to be added on.
