It would be good to have a simple filter like this in the tree.  From a 
quick review:

1) the filtering logic is broken and will consume RAM proportional to 
response size.  The mantra for writing output filters should be: "read 
buckets, process buckets, pass buckets, repeat"

2) 200-line functions are hard to read :)

...otherwise looks like nice simple code.  I don't see a *big* issue 
with the name implying likeness-of-sed.  mod_{pcre,text}_filter or 
something is as good.

Nick, are you actually planning to submit mod_line_edit for inclusion in 
the tree?
