Any buckets that actually need to be kept around (eg buckets
representing a file upload) are set aside by the parser.

Nope, because the copies are fed right into the parser, which 
usually consumes them, so they go right back into the bucket 
allocator for reuse.  Unless the parser truly needs to set them 
aside (because they represent parsed data, eg a file upload), 
the copies are normally available for reuse on the next 
ap_get_brigade cycle.
