ok, i see that now.  as for mod_file_cache taking care of this, it too 
would only reopen the file on every request if we have to, no?
after all, it is mod_file_cache that sets the XTHREAD flag to begin with.
just doesn't seem like bucket_read() is the right place for this logic.

main issue for me is, if the file cannot be mmapped, i want to avoid   
apr_bucket_read()/file_read() and just call apr_file_read() directly for
better performance.  i imagine other modules might want to do this as
well.  wouldn't want to see copy-n-paste of the XTHREAD logic in these
