Ah, yes, my bad.  I forgot that brigades are apr_off_t-based and
buckets are apr_size_t based.  How about making buckets apr_off_t
based instead?  What's the rationale behind having buckets being

Nah, it doesn't need to deal with -1 length buckets.  
apr_brigade_length with "read_all" set to 1 will exhaust all buckets
to get the true length.
