Both of these can be optionally set by the caller, but are otherwise not handled by the caller,
the filter API worries about cleaning up, and worries about ensuring that c->data_in_output_filters
is always accurate.

Another refinement - deferred_write_pool is now just deferred_pool, and we only manipulate
the data_in_output_filters when removing an output filter.
