Isn't the outward-bound data supposed to be stored in a bucket?
I think we're talking about apples and oranges; I'm talking about
filter-private memory, and you appear to be talking about the
memory used to transmit the data into and out of the filter.

Why can't each bucket have its own pool?  When the bucket gets
dumped to the wire, the pool gets destroyed.  If there's some
semi-pathological module along the way, like mod_gzip, that
wants to get all of the buckets before passing any along,
well, we'll have a lot of memory consumption anyway.

Now I think we're talking about the same thing -- but I'm
still not convinced.
