[LLVMdev] Pool Allocation Questions

I've been trying to get up to speed on LLVM in general and the pool 
allocation pass in particular because I need to write a transformation 
which piggybacks off of pool allocation.  I was what the external API to 
pool allocation is, and how would I go about querying it for things like 
"give me the set of pointers to the pools this Value* might be in" from 
my pass after pool allocation is run.  Could someone who knows about 
pool allocation help me with this?  I was also wondering if the 
technique described in the Programmer's Manual for indicating that one 
pass must be run after another applies for pool allocation even though 
it's in a separate tree from LLVM itself.
