Alexander knows about the complete list, maybe he can answer to that in particular.

Hmm.. I had not heard such comments or not to a high enough extend so that this problem has made it into my memory. Just don't forget about two aspects here, first, the complete list of filters is not what we aim to show, but to give some examples to get people talking to us and asking questions (so a question if we also have filter XY would be a good result of the demo), and second, not all filters are presentable - most people seeing the demo have untrained eyes looking at it and therefore a hardly recognizable filter might result in their thought of what the hell we are doing at all there... and that thought is to be avoided by a demo :)

However, if you (or anyone) wants a particular thing to be included in our demos, just give that remark early enough and we will happily include it. We would like to have even more ideas next time!
