 No, picture_pool_configuration_t simply need to be extended.

 I prefer to have 2 functions:
 - one that will allow to be extended easily. picture_pool_NewExtended will do,
it just a matter of extending picture_pool_configuration_t.
 - one that is easy to use (and it is the common use case), picture_pool_New.
