I'm in a similar position to Rich as chance would have it, so I'll tack 
my query onto his if that's OK. I'm looking for hooks at start/end of 
request processing to fetch/return db connections to a pool.

 From googling and rummaging through the source it looks like I should 
be overriding WARequestHandler>>handleRequest or similar. The mail 
archives  seemed to suggest that if a request didn't complete though I'd 
need to take further steps to clean up connections.

Am I in the right direction here?
