Best place to store per-request state ?

I'm learning how to develop module for nginx.

In one of my testing module, I'm trying to save several per-request
int/long states for each http request in my  module. The easiest approach
seems to add these variables to ngx_http_request_s struct. Though I don't
really want to modify core modules.

Is there a recommended approach for saving per-request state without
modifying core http modules?

Thanks a lot!

Many Thanks!

Best Regards
