Yeah. That would work, but... I'd like to leave the interface unchanged
and just fix the bug, if possible.

#2 is probably the best way to solve it, since it won't require users to
specify the initial size in several places.

The argument against it is that it adds another variable to the class,
but that might not matter much as pool objects are rare and not copyable
(I think).

What do you think?
