I didn't realize your handler returned DECLINED.  Either it will run
before the post body is read, or it will not run at all.  You can't
really write anything that runs before the real handler that also
notices something your input filter will change.  There is a module in
2.4 that allows the request body to be buffered, but I don't know much
about it.

I guess it mostly depends on what you expect to do with the
information outside of the filter.
