Ahh ... light dawns. You want to be able to enumerate _all_
the parser+filter combinations that support "q" and "r", not
just find some _one_ parser+filter that fits the bill. You're 
right, the examples I posted address that latter problem, not 
the former.

Hmm ... my feeling is that this is far too specialized. Still
I'd be interested to see if you can come up with something
along those lines.
