* An actor pool with a bunch of reasonable defaults for actors
* that do some kind of blocking IO-bound work. General loose
* assumptions are that the requests to the actors are round-trips with
* replies (active futures), the actors won't use much CPU, that we only want
* to process each message one time, and that the actors in the pool could
* be expensive to create (e.g. establishing a network connection).
* A lot of the values set here are pretty arbitrary and could only
* be set scientifically with a lot of application-specific tuning.
