I'm confused by that - buffering means "some writes are deferred", so a
direct consequence of that is that the st_size returned by a stat on the
file may not equal the number of bytes passed to apr_file_write, right?
If you want stat().st_size to always equal the number of bytes passed to
apr_file_write, then it sounds like you don't want to use buffering?
