Thread Pools are indeed an efficient way of managing native threads - they involve less manual thread creation and destruction, assigning worker threads to manage concurrent task execution is also quite convenient. Libraries such as Intel(R) Threading Building Blocks create thread pools with an optimal number of worker threads - based upon detection of available processors/cores.

Adding features does not necessarily increase functionality -- it just makes the manuals thicker.
