it was assumed that the application does not have the knowledge to
guarantee that complete characters are always passed to
apr_xlate_conv_buffer(); instead, we only assume that the complete
stream of data passed by the application over multiple calls to
apr_xlate_conv_buffer() ends with a complete character (or app gets
the INCOMPLETE return code on last call and realizes there is a
problem since there is no more input data which could complete the

it is a big burden on the application to know when a character ends
