My patch keeps all current scripts working as is, but allows a whole lot more power for people

who need it.

How it works is all filtering will work as it does now but if you define a specific filterset
this will 
overrid the global filters. ( I might have the test for this backwards now that I think about
it  i was 
planning to let globals override locals but that does not make sense. :)

The behavior is no different that patternsets/filesets etc so the users are not learning anything

new just getting more consistent behavior. I kept in mind that people will want to keep it
and the current solution is simple so made sure that still worked.

I dont really mind either way as Im happy to wade around in the code and make it do what I
plus it gives me a bit of variety.
