if you're talking about filters, I would contend that the caller
typically cares about eos, not EOF

eos is the bucket brigade equivalent to EOF in traditional file

an EOF condition on the underlying read operation of a particular
bucket may or may not mean that it is the end of the brigade for the
filter to process

I'm not sure what you're trying to accomplish.  Are you an input
filter?  Is the end of the connection?  Add an eos bucket to what you
return to the caller.  Is there simply no data available from the
client yet?  Return the brigade you have so far.

I probably don't understand the situation, and you've probably hit a
situation that is different than other filters have encountered thus
far.  Different stuff happens at source and sink, and you are both I
