// it gets called when the data incoming to through2 ends. Any clean-up or final
// actions we need to take before we stop getting called happen here.

// there's still a stream 'end' event that has to happen, after this stream will
// do no more. We don't want a race between our cleanup and the caller's last read
// or the end event. They may assume they got it all if end was emitted before this,
// but we had one more thing to do, so we have to tell through2 we're not just done,
// but done-done.
// If we had no atEnd, it would just send 'end' when we're done. But we had one thing
// pending.

// So if we had leftovers, let's put them in headers. This isn't correct, but
// vanishing data in a closure variable is no good either.
// Whatever comes out of our header-splitting stream parser must be the
// body. Because that's what we designed, right?
