Let's back up a second or three...

Don't we need the write-to-the-network filter tied to the conn_rec
instead of the request_rec?  Otherwise, we'll be using different
instances of the write-to-the-network filter for different requests on
the same connection.  That would seem to be a potential pain for SSL
and for a core_filter that wants to buffer output across requests.

What if installing core_filter is associated with initializing the
conn_rec structure (perhaps in a hook called right after creating the

. conn_rec needs an output filter list
. when the request_rec is initialized for a new request it starts off
  with the chain on the conn_rec
. ap_add_filter() (which needs to be renamed to ap_add_output_filter()
  anyway) would need to take the address of the list head
  (&c->output_filters or &r->output_filters) to be modified

What am I missing here?
