That is wrong, since you can't guarantee that it will not lock up. Since
the workers handling monitor events tend to call monitor commands
themselves it's possible that it will get stuck due to unresponsive
qemu. Without having a worst-case-scenario of a thread per VM you can't
guarantee that the pool won't be depleted.

If you want to fix this properly, you'll need a dynamic pool.
