Just so everyone isn't in the dark about what I'm trying to do :)

I'm trying to modify mod_include so that it initially reads POST content and
stores that in a block of memory in the request pool.  I was trying to use
the bucket brigade to fill the area of memory but I'm not sure how to create
a pipe to the block of memory.  (Now I know why I like Java so
much...ByteArrayOutputStream).  Oh, and not to worry about eating up memory
from a rogue request, I will have a variable cLimit (contentLimit) which
will limit the size of the content.

Next, when the handle_include function is called for an include, I want to
first retrieve the block of memory from the pool, then create an input
stream from the the block of memory (ByteArrayInputStream in Java).  The
next step is to give this input stream to the sub request (rr)'s
apr_input_filters and modify the method (change it back to that of the
original request) before calling ap_run_sub_req(rr).  The goal is to allow
each include access to the original POST data as though it was the original

Also, I'm setting this up so that it requires the directive vinclude instead
of include.
