    Maybe that (thread creation) can be done at open(), socket-creation,
    service request, syscall or whatever event triggers a driver/subsystem
    to actually queue work into a thread.

    And when there is a close(), socket-destruction, service completion
    or whatever these threads can be marked for destruction and destroyed
    by a timer or even immediately.
