Then why are we still encouraging users to use the ap_rfoo() API?  This seems
like we've abandoned that approach.

Perhaps a simpler solution is to allow a call such as;

ap_rwrite("", 0, r);

Which aught to initialize the OLD_WRITE filter, even if we don't create
a bucket at that time [due to the 0 bytes, no OLD_WRITE bucket needed.]
