This is not what I had in mind.
I was thinking start with ~32 and double each time limit is reached.
And also, this code grows the pool to infinity with add/remove mark loop.

Anyway, since I clearly did not understand how mempool works and
Jan had some different ideas I would leave it to Jan to explain
how he wants the mempool init limit and resize to be implemented.

Thanks,
Amir.
