I really don't like the very confusing AP_MODE_* semantics as a
fundamental component of the input filter API.  Why not just 
replace ap_get_mime_headers_core with a "request_parser" filter 
(or add this functionality to ap_http_filter) that parses both 
the request line and the incoming headers?  If that were done, 
there would be no need for an AP_MODE_GETLINE invocation (hence 
no apr_brigade_split_line in core_input_filter).
