If we teach the HTTP/1.0 - 1.1 T-E filter to not send the 0 bucket if it sees
the error bucket, and the HTTP/0.9 - 1.1 protocol filter to close the
connection if it sees the error bucket and close the connection, then it should
be trivial to have the waka protocol filter just keep it open flagging the
last request incomplete, no?  So /me concurs with your assessment.
