Exactly.  When Doug wrote his patch, he was concerned about mod_perl's
performance and the fact that mod_perl was creating a lot of very small
buckets.  He can use ap_r, assuming he is actually dealing with a handler,
but if he is writing a filter he can't.  This is one of my concerns with
the filter mechanism.  It doesn't deal with issues like mod_perl, so
mod_perl, mod_snake, php, etc, are all likely to have buffering code.
