NOTE: The first part of this is already somewhat "completed" in my work on the MediaFilter. To create such a custom MediaFilter, I had to change the old MediaFilter abstract class into a Java interface, so that you can create MediaFilters which are also Plugins (a la PluginManager). I released a patch a while back (SF#1589429, perhaps wrongly named "Named MediaFilters"), which does exactly this and is required for the work I've done. That being said, I like the simple admin UI idea to potentially allow for*any MediaFilters to be kicked off (and perhaps even configured more easily) via an admin UI. - TimDonohue
