The MPM should be responsible for defining the client interface (conn_rec),
right?  Wouldn't it make sense, then, for the MPM to be responsible for
creating the lowest-layer filter?  In other words, maybe we should move
the code from core to mpm_common, and let some MPMs (like Win's AcceptEx)
define their own connection management filter.
