Before the postpone filter you'll get subrequest bodies in your 
filter, which is probably not what you want (the postpone filter 
is to glue subrequest together, correctly ordered).

The HTTP_AUX_FILTER_MODULES is a generic queue, and it's the 
only one currently officially supported for 3rd party modules.

If you want your filter to be called right before/after postpone 
filter, it should be relatively safe to put it into the 
HTTP_POSTPONE_FILTER_MODULE variable though (and may be with some 
additional checks to make sure the postpone filter is enabled, or 
just a code to enable it unconditionally).
