Hi Dave,

That looks fine.
The only nit I saw was in the context:

There, it'd be clearer to diagnose with something like
"missing pool source device name", since there are a few
other "name" elements.

Not a show-stopper at all, but it'd be great if you could add a unit
test or two, so this new code gets some regular coverage.
