We actually implement a slightly different pooling mechanism, which
was recently improved by the landing of a patch from James Henstridge.
I'll explain how we do it in Zope3, and how the "pooling" system works,
so that you can imagine how to integrate it in CherryPy.
Here is how it works, from a high-level perspective: we have a ZStorm
utility which provides per-thread Store instances based on a name=>uri
mapping (code asks for zstorm.get("main-store"), for instance). This
utility is actually very simple, except for the logic to hook it in
Zope's transaction mechanism, which you don't need.
So how would pooling work in that environment? Well, we actually
don't need a "traditional" pooling system, because each thread has its
own Store, which is kept alive across transactions and requests.
The last step missing in that environment is how to handle disconnections,
