Chris is there a way to create such a filter structure so that the app does
not need to know which filters are available in sword?
The new optionFilter= structure seems to go into this direction. Is there a
way for the app to look for the optionFilter= declaration and then create the
fitting objects dynamically without knowing which are available in sword?
Otherwise the filter specific code in the apps will always have to be changed
when a new sword is released with new/changed filters?
If not yet possible, maybe a SWFilter* returnFilterForOption(char* option)
would be appropriate? And how are the options in the filter handled? Should
be the same, the app shouldn't need to know which options (e.g. "On", "Off")
are available... Maybe a simple setActive(bool active) would be sufficient,
especially with very specialized filters like the gbffootnotes filter?
Lets discuss this a bit. It would be good to create a future-safe solution
