Create a brigade in your filter, and transfer all incoming buckets
into it after using setaside to ensure they don't go out of scope.
When you see an EOS bucket, do your processing.

Where the data come from is irrelevant.  If it works with mod_proxy,
it'll work equally with a local generator.

This would be more on-topic on the apache-modules list.
