I've been doing more testing, and it appears that the insert_filter hook (the "ap_headers_insert_output_filter()"
function) is the only place where I can put my code where it has access to the variables that
it needs to do the processing that I'm doing.

The problem is that if that other Oracle module is enabled in the Apache, it runs before my
code, and I can't get the insert_filter hook (my function) to get processed before the Oracle

Can anyone suggest how I might be able to do that?
