Detailed Description

A container for a pool of threads. Threads idle continuously until loaded with a function to execute. A subset of threads then execute the function synchronously and then return to the idle state.

Note
The basic verison of this class assigns functions to threads on a first-come, first-served basis. If I request 8 threads and 8 threads are idle, I get all 8 threads. If the next request also asks for 8 threads while I'm still using mine, it only gets the thread that made the request. Derived classes can implement different behaviour for assigning work to threads.
