I think the points you made in this email would be useful, namely,

- Poolnames being hints to reviewers of pool usage.
- O(1) leakage vs. O(N) leakage in case of SVN_ERR causing a return
  from the function without cleaning up a pool created there.
- the previous point also might help reduce worry about mixing and
  matching various pools in a function.
- Using the incoming pool for data that is persistent throughout
  the function.

I've probably edited your email badly in my response. My apologies if
I've misinterpreted your comments.

Regards
Sameer
