I just realised that the docs didn't mention this feature in the scheduler.  
i've updated it in CVS.

the idea is that you can create named pools of helper threads, and when you 
create a new Lua thread, you can specify which pool it should use.

that way, you can create a pool of say, 20 helper threads, and then thousands 
of Lua threads (one per client) use them.  no new C thread would be created 
if you don't want.
