I disagree, but only until you can convince me otherwise.  Buffering in the 'core' as in http_core
is fine. Buffering needs to go in before the chunking filter, one way or the other, either
in the
buffer filter or in the routines that module writers use to do network i/o. The buffer_filter
seemed a logical first stab and maybe even the best solution.
