I don't really see the point. In fact the only part of the series
I feel uneasy about is the growing of the pools, because it already
adds a fair amount of complexity that we might not need for simple
things, but shrinking really doesn't make any sense. So I'm tempted
to not ever support shrinking, and even make growing optional code under
a new config variable. We'll also need a way to query the current size
through e.g. a debugfs file.
