But in the current implemention, we end up allocating new space
each time the buckets are compacted, because we start with an
empty brigade, right?  So even if the first bucket in the list
to be compacted happens to have been created by a previous
apr_brigade_write (because we end up compacting twice on the
same request, due to a long stream of small buckets produced by
a CGI or mod_include), we can't take advantage of the extra space
within that bucket.  Or am I missing something?
