To clarify, the issues with handling of the buckets and the fact that
buckets are not being set aside came from the original code. The
question about what to do regarding f->next versus passing the data
along some other way is the only one that came from the code I added to
make the header optional.

Being honest, I don't fully grok all the details of the filter stack and
what kinds of buckets to expect emanating from core as the request for
data propagates up through the input filters, but what Rudiger has
pointed out seems like a structural problem with the module that could
bite users under certain circumstances. What I'm particularly unclear
about is what those circumstances would be.

I'll try to reply to the other thread to provide more clarity.
