I'm not sure here. My (unverified) guess is, that the memory pool will be
free'd only after the last item allocated from it got free'd. This shouldn't
be a problem as long as the memory pool doesn't live in a shared library
which gets unloaded prematurely.

But anyway, doesn't using std::copy() for the embedded list<>'s allow to
change to any adequate data structure?
