I've noticed that there's no real way that I could see to be notified that all the pools have actually destroyed all their resources successfully. pg.end() ends just orders the pool to drain and destroyAllNow, but doesn't notify anyone when these actions are completed.

This change lets us do this with a new event "ended":

    var deferred = Q.defer();
    pg.on('ended', function() {
    pg.on('error', function(err) {
    return deferred.promise;

Thanks! Very good idea. One question: why not use the more standard pg.emit('end') instead of ended? I like event names to be present tense - gives more sense of action in the code, and kinda follows node convention better.

I'm just not very good at naming! updated!

By the way - sorry for the ghetto state of the tests here. I have quite a few, but they were written before things like mocha or node-tap or anything existed, so they're a bit home-grown. I really appreciate you wading through them.

I'll merge & release asap.

Thanks for merging. I think the tests are pretty good in general, I'm happy that there's good coverage and I'm surprised I can usually find pretty quickly a test to model on when adding my own tests... How do you handle documentation? Do you write it up as part of the release?
