Thank you very much! I thought some nice person might have stuck this in
an undocumented area!
r->connection->client->inptr gives me what I need. This will do for 1.3
but I'll port to 2 in the fullness of time. Great thing is, I don't have
to call ap_should_client_block() now as the POST data is already there,
having already come down the wire with the request headers.
Get your cutlery ready, you'll be eating pie soon!

yes, it's right

 which seems a waste as

data has already come over the wire; data is stored somewhere in
request_rec; 
if you want access (but in read-only as no update api was provided) this
data 
(client post parameters), you have to use ap_should_client_block(); who
is 
wasting what?!?

yes sir! 

   if (ap_should_client_block(r)) {
		char *p=r->connection->client->inptr;

after calling ap_should_client_block(r), you can freely access post
parameters 
pointing a char* to r->connection->client->inptr;
there are stored post parametrs, exactly what you are searching
for....BUT!!!
BUT...this is true only for http; if you are using https, at that
address you 
will not find post parameters; to access them in https is very very
tricky 
and i was not able to do it (sigh!)

now cook and send us the pie!
