After sleeping over it, I don't think this is such a good idea, because it doesn't work in all cases. If you use the separated functions like this it will not work:


Any other module that also operates on the message body suffers from this, and I'd rather not add tens of workarounds here-and-there.

The proper solution would of course be to get rid of the lumps :-), but since that is unlikely to happen soon, I suggest we reconsider having a apply_message_changes function, which would apply all the lumps immediately, so the next function that operates on the message would find it changed already. Example:


This function is already implemented in Kamailio and a while ago I started porting it but I didn't finish it. It should be pretty straightforward to finish it, so if we settle on this approach I could finish it. However, being a new feature it would only make it to 1.9 version.
