The files are also closed when the pool is cleared. There is no need to
destroy the pool for that. Generally it is a good idea to clear pools if you
expect a long period of inactivity. In case of TSVN I would create a pool per
menu action and another for long lived data between menu actions. (But you
probably know that; I'm not familiar with TSVN code...)
