If a filter doesn't pass down any data, then it should just be returning
to the previous filter.  At some point, the filter must pass data down, or
there is nothing for lower level filters to act on.

I believe the ability for a bucket to have NULL data was introduced with
the BRIGADE macros.  I ran into similar problems last night while trying
to finish mod_include.  The problem with the brigade macros, is that you
must use the macros to do any looping through a brigade or bucket list.
