with the caveat that i haven't looked at the 2.0 code in many months, what
you want is already supported.  it's not a parameter to the i/o functions,
it's an option you set on the underlying APR socket.  now what that API
actually looks like today (after the buckets and filters were added), i
dunno.  look for a setopt function.
