But we've shown there's a leak.  I've shown that it wasn't too bad when
processing smallish content, but others have had httpd swapping out with larger
content.  If our project deploys the substitute filter, we will need it to be
rock solid on content from a few bytes up to several megabytes.

Are you implying that there is significant overhead with apr_bucket_delete()?
