I do not believe I am. The original filter interceptor is created and added 
like always. I simply added the calls:
1. addLookupFilter()
2. addSearchResultFilter()

Really, the code I pasted ~line 480 was all I changed within Eve. I'm not 
creating a new filter interceptor. (when you say service I hear interceptor -

All I want to do is this:

modify an incoming request:
1. dn: ou=mozilla,ou=contacts,uid=6760,dc=home2,dc=mark
2. query: '(blah=a b)'

so it looks like this:
1. ou=super,ou=contacts,uid=6760,dc=home2,dc=mark
2. '(cn=a b)'

Then, do the reverse on the output (if anything).
