Why are you so against changing this?  Can we please have a technical
reason against making this change?  The current scheme requires adding a
new type every time we come up with a dependancy.  There are more filter
types than just connection, network, and content.  What happens when we
have a gzip filter installed, and we want to insert a php filter?  Things
will break with the current schema.
