First in, last out, actually, is what I meant.

I don't see what you mean. They'd push their filters onto the
connection's BUFF, in the order that they get their connection_open phase
run. So you'd just order them the correct way when you installed the
modules, just like you need to put mod_rewrite after mod_proxy if you
want to rewrite proxying.

Or am I misunderstanding the question?
