Thanks Cliff, I've been to both of your great talks :)

Perhaps someone on this list will take up an initiative to write such a 
document, by first putting together the existing resources and then beef it up 
to add the missing stuff. I'm sure Cliff and other filter gurus will be more 
than helpful to answer any questions arising while working on such a document.

I'd have taken up that project by myself, but I'm already spread too thin and 
must finish first the mod_perl 2.0 API docs before we can release 2.0.

To add to Cliff's list of resources, mod_perl 2.0 filter documentation is 
pretty extensive and perhaps it's the easiest to start with filters by writing 
them in perl. For more information see:

p.s. may be rbb will be willing to contribute parts of his book's filters chapter.
