Thanks for all the info.

I'm inclined to commit what we think is proper for FCGI_STDIN on
FCGI_AUTHORIZER and then see if it absolutely has to be adjusted later
once other issues with FCGI_AUTHORIZER are cleared up and we see a
variety of implementations being tested with it.

(I'll go with patch 3, which adds the eos bucket to the brigade.)
