Patches coming all around.  Currently (before the SetFilter directive was
added), the way it worked was you would do:

AddOutputFitler INCLUDES

in your config file.  Generally this would go in a Directory or Files
container, so it would all just work.  People disliked that when I
committed it.  They wanted a different syntax and a different method for
assigning filters.  SetFilter was an attempt at fixing that.

I'll try to get to it as soon as I roll the alpha, or over Thanksgiving,
or next week.....   :-)
