How many worker-threads should be created inside the default threadpool?
Which scheduling strategy should by applied?

The pool could use FIFO ordering of the queued tasks but the amount of
worker-threads depend on the threadpool usage.
THe pool could create as many worker-threads as CPUs are online an bind each
thread to one specific CPU/Core - CPU intensive apps could benefit form this
scenario. Applications with lot of IO require usally more worker-threads than
