FWIW, flood in httpd-test already has 80% of what Sander suggested.
The major thing it is missing is bucket/brigade/filters - which is 
why I'm getting pissy about the API change because I want to move 
flood to this.  (It is also missing chunking and pipelining which I 
was working on when I got interrupted when I saw how httpd handles 
it and started to rewrite the input filtering.)

The one thing I would change in Sander's proposal is that I detest
callbacks.  And, I think the API would need to be a bit more 
formal.  And, the build process cleaned up.  And, more testing.
Yadda, yadda, yadda.

And, in discussions with Roy, I think he was thinking a client
library should be a part of httpd not APR.  But, I don't care
one way or another.  -- justin
