Subject RE: Implementing split() on pipe buckets?

fine, but those are Apache functions, not bucket functions.  These things
cannot be implemented in the buckets code.  That is all I have been
saying.  The bucket implementation does not allow for splitting pipes or
sockets, so if we want to wrap those, then that is up to Apache.

I don't want to pollute the buckets with Apache specific ideas, and how we
recover from not getting enough data is Apache specific.  If we want to
implement a pipe/socket split, then it MUST be done at the Apache level.
