Hmm. These changes will create a lot of pools at import time which even may
not be used (if the caller chooses to supply its own pool).
Furthermore, you leak memory now, because the pools are never cleared. (Or
do I miss something magical in the swig stuff?).

The pool creation at import time can be solved by using

def foo(..., pool = None):
   if pool is None:
      pool = Pool()

The leaks probably need to be solved by explicitly calling pool.clear() at
the proper places (using subpools and try: finally: may be a good choice).
