Oh, duh, yeah of course.  Thanks for clearing the air.  =-)  I wasn't
thinking from the beginning.  I started with the assumption that we had
two brigades and we wanted to combine them or twiddle them in some way
(which filters do all the time), missing the obvious fact that in THIS
case you don't have to do that.  Tack some stuff onto the beginning, pass
it down.  That's it.  Well, anyway, now you (Eric) know what the rules are
if you have a more complicated case.

Thanks Greg.  :)
