Rather than messing with lots of different filters, why not add new
primitives that - akin to find(1)'s -print or -ls - always succeed, but
specify the disposition of the packet? Of course, there would be
problems; in particular, you would still have to impose an order on
multiple filters from multiple user-land processes...or does BPF impose
a restriction that makes that moot?
