That seems like about the best we can do with the current APIs. One
thing that occurs to me about the way the lock code is doing this
though, perhaps it should be setting lrb->pool to the current pool, as
opposed to the session pool, so as to avoid leaking memory inside the
hook callbacks.

Thanks for the pointer!
