I'm going to replace apr_pool_create by using the (private) APR::Pool
class that I added a couple days ago, and that will take care of
lifetime management and (eventually) error management. That currently
uses svn_pool_*, but may not at some later time; for now I've been
concentrating on getting the interface right and not worrying about
implementation details too much.
