Betreff: Re: 2.4 pause - mod_http2 patchset Upgrade h2c vs mod_ssl Upgrade tls makes things more interesting, it calls out
that 101-continue and the request body read precedes the 101-switching protocols.  Not sure
who decided that would be a good idea, sigh... but mod_ssl TLS upgrade has these reversed
for several good reasons including the intent to encrypt the request body if present and simple
economics of processing.

I think that handling upgrade advertisement and alerting must be in post read req, bypassing
all request hooks until the 101-continue is presented, any small request body read and set
aside for the http input brigade, and 101-switching protocols is presented.  This allows the
request to still be processed for tls-style upgrades, or discarded for relevant protocols.

How do we handle this today if the client just sends a request body and not an Expect header?
Do we set it already aside before answering with a 101?
