Yes, but the concept of the protocol is intertwined with the concept
of a request.  A request should be one "transaction" of a protocol
interaction.  A protocol filter shouldn't survive successive
iterations of a "request" - we saw that didn't work for HTTP.

What's wrong with a simple hook that lets the protocol engines add
filters to a request?  -- justin
