I think where stas is headed are cases like ryan's mod_apachecon

which seems to be to be a valid example - you want to manipulate part of the
HTTP request, such as the request line or incoming headers, and post-read is
too late. but simply scaning input for GET .* HTTP/1.0 isn't sufficient,
since it's not foolproof, so it would be nice to have something that
signaled the start of a request.
