   * Shutdown the thread pool.  This method may not be executed from any thread
   * in the thread pool.  Instead, it is meant to be executed from another
   * thread (usually the thread that created this thread pool).  When this
   * function returns, the thread pool and all of its threads will be shutdown,
   * and it will no longer be possible to dispatch tasks to the thread pool.

   * Get/set the maximum number of threads allowed at one time in this pool.

   * Get/set the maximum number of idle threads kept alive.

   * Get/set the amount of time in milliseconds before an idle thread is
   * destroyed.
  attribute unsigned long idleThreadTimeout;

   * An optional listener that will be notified when a thread is created or
   * destroyed in the course of the thread pool's operation.
   * A listener will only receive notifications about threads created after the
   * listener is set so it is recommended that the consumer set the listener
   * before dispatching the first event. A listener that receives an
   * onThreadCreated() notification is guaranteed to always receive the
   * corresponding onThreadShuttingDown() notification.
   * The thread pool takes ownership of the listener and releases it when the
   * shutdown() method is called. Threads created after the listener is set will
   * also take ownership of the listener so that the listener will be kept alive
   * long enough to receive the guaranteed onThreadShuttingDown() notification.
