You can build a filter chain using a filter chain string (this doesn't
apply to vout-filters as they aren't real filters). I'm planning on

make them use dedicated API calls to modify them instead of just
creating a string and using var_Set (because building a string to have
it be split up again is kind of stupid ... and a major PITA in C).
