I am wondering if the EOR bucket is a suboptimal way to clean up after ourselves.

The MPM itself is in a position to know when the filter buffers are all empty and it is safe
to delete a request pool. I am imagining a “shutdown set”, which contains the pools which
have been marked as ready to shut down. If there is a pool in the shutdown set, walk the outstanding
filters and look for any filters whose pools are descendants of that pool, and check if the
filters are empty. If so, apr_pool_destroy() and we’re done. If the “shutdown set” is
empty, do nothing.

Instead of creating an EOR bucket, we call an MPM API that says “add this pool to the shutdown
set”, and then forget about it.

Legacy MPMs fall back to EOR behaviour, but we deprecate it.

I think the above is a far safer approach than assuming filters will “do the right thing”.
