IMHO, it shouldn't.  Modules should *never* insert filters on
their own; it should be completely under the control of the
user.  I'd expect something like:

FilterSet setname1 ssi-parse digestify
AddFilter .cgi setname1

or maybe

AddFilter .cgi ssi-parse digestify

meaning that the output from the content handler for .cgi
would be run through the SSI parser, and the result of *that*
would then be passed through the digestifier.

Which means the core builds the stack.
