I guess you should "take your time" and produce the simplest possible
*library* (genfilters.py, or whatever you choose to call it), put it
up on the web and then we can focus on the connection points
necessary/useful for ipython integration. I'm sure many connection
points deemed useful could be implemented by factoring out the
functionality to be replaced to hooks.py and then implementing the
replacements as ipython hooks.

Most use cases of such a filter system do overlap the use cases of
ipython, but the basic solution can be done in plain-old-python space
and can be harnessed by ipython by just doing "from genfilters import
