You didn't miss anything.

The ctx was not supposed to be a bucket brigade. I noticed that on the first
checkin. I just went and fixed it.

>From the design meeting, we had agreed that the ctx would be a void* (per
the original checkin for defining ap_filter_t). Further, the get/save data
for bucket brigades would *not* use that field. We agreed that nothing in
the filtering infrastructure should attempt to use that field, so that it
could be left for the filters to use as they desired.
