The first filter reads from the network - off a socket stored in a
conn_rec. The other filters are CORE, CORE_IN, HTTP_IN and DECHUNK.

I don't see why this should happen - both the standard existing
connection (client -> proxy) and the proxy connection (proxy -> server)
have almost identical needs, such as client_socket, remote_addr,
local_addr, hostname, keepalive, keepalives, keptalive, etc etc. Those
fields we don't need we ignore. Coming up with a new structure and
duplicating the filters just adds more code and more work for us.

I agree though that it would be good to decouple the filters from the
request_rec structure, as we currently have to knock up a skeleton
request_rec structure to get the DECHUNK filter to work, and to use
