I don't think we have eos buckets in the upload brigade.

I don't like calling APR_BUCKET_NEXT on a deleted bucket.
IMO deleting a bucket is like calling free on it, so it
should be considered a dead pointer at this point.

apreq cleans up its brigades after the request is over.
It shouldn't leak anything comparable to the upload size,
since we use spool (essentially file) buckets to hold that
