To answer my own question :-), this line in apr_buckets.h describes the
"read" method for buckets:

  apr_status_t (*read)(apr_bucket *b, const char **str, apr_size_t *len, 

I interpret the const qualifier here to mean that modifications (to
the raw data) are disallowed by the bucket API, and that the setaside
implementation for heap-type buckets is fine as-is.  Is this correct?
