You can call me on anything you want, but this is exactly what I said.  We
currently ask handlers to output the headers.  This doesn't work with
filters.  The code that actually outputs the headers (from the
request_rec) needs to be moved to either ap_r* or ap_l* depending on the
approach.  Re-read it, because that's exactly what I said/meant last
