I don't really know what to do with the "--filter=distort:ripple" kind of 
command line option. I would really like to get rid of it because it 
doesn't fit well into the configuration framework that we put in place. I 
understand that if you look only from the "command line" perspective it is 
a lot easier than typing "--filter=distort --distort-type=ripple" but it 
also creates more problems than it solves.

IMHO your patch is the way to go and we should get rid of these kludges!
