"git blame" and "git show" to the rescue :)

    Print WARNING if we fall below "min" connections

    We want to close idle sessions, sessions with max lifetime
    or max uses.  BUT we want to enforce "min".  The code will
    currently close a connection, notice "num < min", and spawn
    a new one.  We warn the user that this is happening, so that
    they can fix their configuration.
