I see reasons for both cases. I've added new API to allow configuring
this behaviour. By default, we will leave this untouched. However you
can play with it. You'll find the thread pool files update at [1] and

The API to be used is: vortex_thread_pool_set_exclusive_pool. Here is an

// at your initialization code, before calling vortex_init..
vortex_thread_pool_set_exlusive_pool (FALSE);

// more initialization stuff, and finally
vortex_init ();

Let us to know any interesting data about the performance (or any
difference) you may find tweaking this value. 

Good day Phil!
