I'm not fond of this proposal.  The existing behaviour is harmless; especially for a thread pool, since threads are cheap resources.  Improving the logic a bit might seem nice, but it also complicates the executor implementation a bit more.

Besides, once the N threads are spawned, they remain alive until the executor is shut down. So all it takes is a spike in incoming requests and you don't save resources anymore.
