Yes, that's a much better example.  That's exactly the kind of thing I'm talking
about.  Whether it's the byterange filter or just some filter that similarly wants
to "fast-forward" to a certain predetermined location in the stream (or, conversely,
to take say the first 100 bytes and ditch the rest, like some kind of "preview"
filter or something), I can very easily see ap_brigade_split_offset being a useful
utility function.

I'm going to go ahead with a patch to do as I proposed before (change from split_any
to brigade_split and delete copy_any).  We can debate it further later, of course,
since Ryan and Greg are out of pocket at the moment...
