Some of the discussions in the 
	"[RFC] Permissions filters on file/patternset"
thread would cover this.

My feel is that a lot of this sort of functionality is a 
 bit haphazard. 
You shouldn't turn "filtering" on on <copy>, you should
 apply a mapper to the original fileset, to produce a
 new filset with the filtered names.

And turning on filtering for specific tokens is not
 always what you want.
Sometimes you want to prepend something to the name,
 or append it.

It should be more configurable than it currently is.
