Yes, exactly.  The only problem is that this will require
a design change.  Currently, the last write can complete
after the request_rec no longer exists (if the connection
is a keepalive).

Solving this is tricky.  One possibility is to transfer
ownership of the the request (including its pool) to
the core output filter as soon as we pass an EOF to that
filter.  That would complicate the memory management a
bit, but it might be worth the effort because it would
give us almost all the infrastructure needed to support
a semi-async MPM.
