That's exactly why people shouldn't be using $r->content,
especially if they're coding something besides a content-handler.
Encouraging authors to pull the POST data out of the filter chain
prematurely, and maybe stuff it into a request note, is IMHO not 
goodness.  Especially not for an aaa handler; it'll certainly
wind up breaking modules that are based on apreq-2.
