All of the Worker threads. Executor pattern still works, since it  
just takes a Runnable and handles them. (It does not impose any  
restrictions on task execution length)

Paul Hammant is having me help him do a MINA transport for http:// 
xircles.codehaus.org/projects/jremoting, and asked if it were  
possible for all MINA threads that were created to be put into a  
thread pool owned by what is containing MINA. As it stands now, all  
threads but the Worker threads can be moved.

The change would basically be to replace new Thread() with a  
submission to the Executor.
