[Backgroundrb-devel] Pool Size

I am not sure how pool size works or if it applies to the following
I would like a pool of 10 worker processes that basically all do the
same thing (based on args i send). I would like to be able to pass
args to the pool of workers and the next available one will handle
it. If there happens to be 10 already processing, I would like the
request to be queued until a worker is available.
What is the best way to handle this? The docs say do_work only gets
called on new_worker, and that I should call delete. But won't this
in effect create a new process and delete the process? How can I
call delete when I am not sure when the process will be done?
Thanks for any insight/feedback.
