I don't think that's right. For example mod_substitute does this to
remove the pattern that matched from the input:

#define SEDRMPATBCKT(b, offset, tmp_b, patlen) do {  \
    apr_bucket_split(b, offset);                     \
    tmp_b = APR_BUCKET_NEXT(b);                      \
    apr_bucket_split(tmp_b, patlen);                 \
    b = APR_BUCKET_NEXT(tmp_b);                      \
    apr_bucket_delete(tmp_b);                        \
} while (0)

The dump_brigade macro in .gdbinit in the source tree will help here.
