So you agree that IoFilter.init( IoFilterChain parent, NextFilter 
nextFilter ) doesn't make any sense?

I think this is very important since if it should be

init( IoFilterChain parent, NextFilter nextFilter, IoSession session )

instead it means that you will *never* be able to add an IoFilter to an 
IoFilterChain unless there's a session. And that means that there *can't 
be* any sessionManagerChain or portChain. It would work like I outlined 
earlier today. The IoAcceptor/IoConnector simply has an ordered list of 
name to filter mappings and the same for each port. The chain isn't 
created until there is a session.

If it should be

init( IoFilterChain parent )

you could either use a "hack" to get hold of the session like in 
SSLFilter. The code looks like this:

init(parent, nextFilter)
    Object managerOrSession = parent.getParent();
    if( managerOrSession instanceof IoSession )
        createSSLSessionHandler( nextFilter, ( IoSession ) 
managerOrSession );

Or forget about asynchronous events (no matter how you get hold of the 
session for your asynch event I think it would be more or less a hack).

I would prefer the first solution.
