You can also use a custom object name when loading a module via the
command line. For example --sub-filter marq will create an object named
"marq" (ie the module's name) while --sub-filter marq at pouet will create
an object named "pouet". (Which is usefull for variable callbacks when
you have more than one instance of the same filter for example)
