Interesting.  I think it would be helpful to have the semantics of this 
bucket type described in the header as well.

So filters should treat a WC bucket the same as FLUSH in general?  And 
specifically, filters are broken if they don't?  It seems like an 
accident that this makes mod_ssl's coalesce filter flush, merely because 
it will flush for *any* metadata bucket type, but it didn't have to be 
designed that way.

If so I wonder if it wouldn't be better to overload FLUSH for this, e.g. 
by having a FLUSH bucket with a non-NULL ->data pointer or something? 
The core knows it is special but everywhere else treats as FLUSH.

(Seems we need bucket subclasses...)
