A filter could hypothetically ignore AP_MODE_READBYTES's len parameter and 
return more.  But, none of the current filters in our core do this - they will 
return at most X bytes.  I believe we take the position if a filter returns 
more than X in this case, it is broken.  So, it should be a good assumption to 
make.  -- justin
