This also conflicts with Tom's rewrite of the filter engine to make
it on-the-fly modifiable.

Li, mind reworking your series against latest -tip? (it has Tom's
patch included already)

Also, it would be nice to hear Tom's opinion about this series as
well. I know there's new parsing features planned - if it's better
that way then Tom you might want to pick up Li's patches and submit
them together with any pending or upcoming changes? We can apply
them directly too if that's easier to you.

Thanks,

Ingo
