i think it should be possible to rebuild the whole filter chain (dont ask me
how exactly i would have to RTFS too ...)

and inserting/removing without complete rebuild is generally tricky anyway, 
independant of the filter API

just think of changing image size, changing pixel format, changing
availability of slices, direct rendering, ... as the filter graph is changed

also what would happen with filters which use previous frames, the frames
they saw no longer match the new filter graph ...

so IMHO complete rebuild is ok for insert/remove, unless its easy to just
insert/remove a filter with the new API ...

and of course a generic conditional wraper filter which could feed frames
through another filter or let them pass unfilterd would be cute, something

Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give
it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For
even the very wise cannot see all ends. -- Gandalf
