Well, this is more of an issue with the order in which modules are
parsed, isn't it? We've discussed, for 2.0, abilities to change that
order from the compiled-in order.

If we go with my idea of having modules register callbacks for API phases
instead of a static list of function pointers, they can ask for a
priority, or ask to be placed before/after another module, maybe?

We could even, I suppose, allow configuration of the order in which
modules are called for a given API phase.

So I think it's a seperate issue from an API to allow filtered streams,
but something we should deal with nonetheless.
