 	Yes, the extra functionality comes at a cost.  I haven't heard 
increased complaints since that code was added, have you?

 	Sort of.  Except for the filters that already ran, because they 
happened to be unlucky enough to be sorted that way alphabetically.  There 
probably is an ordering that I would be happy with (except for the 
bayesian filter), so this could be solved by renaming the plugins, maybe 
using 00_authimage, 01_hostblock, etc.

 	I had forgotten about the event model - that wasn't in the code 
the last time we talked about how to fix this double pipeline issue.

 	Well, let's get Oscar to decide about which is correct, and go 
with that.  I'll look at making a bayesian filter plugin that does what I 
want it to do.
