This part is especially interesting because it leads me to a question 
that may come up as CoR becomes more well-known in Struts land... why is 
a composable RP better than a collection of filters?  It's essentially 
the same thing, except that you could probably say you have more control 
over your own chain.  Why would something like security for instance be 
better implemented as a modified RP chain than some loosely-coupled 
filters?  I ask this partly because we have a complex security framework 
at work that takes the filter approach, although it could just as easily 
be done in the app framework itself.  Any thoughts?
