Nak.  ap_r* fn's would create an r->bb for him, and shuttle all of
his ap_r* calls into that brigade.

Only the _cross-mechansim_ author needs to know that if he _chooses_
to create is very own brigade, it isn't in sync with any ap_r* calls
he might make, unless he then stuffs it in r->bb (presuming r->bb wasn't
created... hmmm, sounds like an ap_set_request_brigade() semantic is in
order to be _certain_ that user's don't directly hork up an already
created r->bb)
