Huh?  What does that mean that only connection filters handle the readbytes
argument?  That is completely bogus.  If we are designing a system where we
pass an argument to every filter, but not every filter needs to respect it, then
we are doing this wrong.  If that is the goal, then put the readbytes information
into the conn_rec where it belongs, so that it is only visible to connection
filters.  Every single input filter must respect the readbytes argument that it is
