Originally I didn't think this was good; rather that ordering of filters
should be done by the user/coder.(ie add them in the order you want

After talking to niq on IRC, i realized this is contrary to how filters
already operate (why even have connection type filters then? why not
have the user apply them in the required order?) 

It makes sense to add another (or even more) types of filters.  This
allows for cleaner control of the active filters in addition to making
it easier for everyone involved.
