True, I haven't read up on the RFC to determine exactly when the
trailer is set.  The way that it was being done didn't allow for
trailers to be handled - now it is obvious where this should go.

I believe that the AP_MODE_PEEK would actually take care of this.
Greg and I were commenting that it eats any blank CRLF pairs after
a request.  That's not exactly what it is supposed to do (it is
PEEK after all), but it does handle this situation.  The first
request wouldn't read that extra CRLF.  When that request is done,
we do a PEEK and that eats the CRLFs.  Then, the next request is
read.  -- justin
