I noticed that.  I actually spent a little time tracking down the
apr_file_close() calls the other day because I wasn't sure why they are
in there, and it turns out that (give or take about five intervening
function renames) they've been around ever since mod_asis was using
fopen()/fclose() directly.  The apr_file_close() calls should go away
since the pool cleanup does the work for us already and does it at "the
right time."

#3 is better for performance than #2 because it spares us the creation of
a second brigade and an extra trip down the filter stack.  +1 to that in
addition to number 1.
