They refcount the number of times the FILE bucket has been split/copied, 
they don't refcount the number of times the underlying apr_file_t object 
is used.

APR does not seem to be consistent about of whether "ownership" of the 
object is passed on when you create a bucket wrapper for that object 
type; there are no API guarantees or constraints here.  From a quick 
review, PIPE, MMAP, HEAP (kind of) do take ownership, FILE and SOCKET do 

Have you run the perl-framework test suite to see whether this breaks 
anything?  This change does look like it'll break the APR test suite but 
only because of the way I happened to write one of the buckets tests.

Regards, Joe
