Improve the datapool efficiency when using with multiple scripts

Lets assume there are two scripts Script 1 and Script 2. Both of there scripts are using the common data pool. When Script 1(iterate until done) calls Script 2 on first iteration (while the first row is fetched from the data pool) and if Script 2 has code to iterate through end of the data pool. Script 1 is not catching up from the second row for the next iteration instead it going to the next available row following the iterator from the Script 2.
