What I've had in mind for a while is a connection level buffering  
filter that allows the backend request to complete and for r->pool to  
be destroyed (and all resources released), while the frontend takes  
its time consuming the data. I suspect that buffering filters are  
simple enough that trying to optimise them may be over the top.
