In this case, you want to create a simple input filter, which puts  
your intended request body into a brigade, and then passes the brigade  
(containing your body) to whatever is making the request.

Look in trunk for the module that implements the KEPT_BODY filter, it  
does the same thing and will give you an example of how it is done.
