These ones seem like they should be fairly straightforward in that they
don't sound very "invasive" to the rest of the CM logic; they're just
filters on the end of the pipeline I guess.

This I have no clue how to do, but I'm sure if it can be figured out at
all we could figure out how to do it in the default CM ...
