Yes. It is my intention to add to Apache 2.0 a new 'filter' API that
will allow modules to do things like this (it would require something
like sfio or bstdio, though, or maybe a large rewrite of BUFF). It
would also allow modules to be written to do things like SSL. It
remains to be seen, however, exactly how Apache 2.0 will come

I would, however, like to see this in 2.0. *shrug*
