I think a better analogy is: 'is it closer to the network?'  My impression 
from reading your code is that it is further away from the network than 
HTTP_IN.  Is that correct?  FWIW, that's how I'd do it: HTTP_IN runs first, 
then this new one - looking for the EOS generated from HTTP_IN.

Above and before are all screwy ways to phrase it.  ;-)

If my above assertion is correct, looks fine.  -- justin
