The text in this passage talking about the core doing the
ap_add_filter() temporarily diverted me from seeing the point:

  "#2 The mime type informs either the core or the module to
  insert the filter.  It makes more sense to me to have the core doing
  that, because the core has the mime information and the filter

After re-reading it a few times I got back on track with the main point.  

Your response to Greg this a.m. certainly removed any doubt that I
knew what you were saying.  The joy of e-mail...
