Hi Kip,

I admit I like the idea of using MP2 filters. I haven't really looked at 
your code but what do you think we would gain when using filters for the 
pipeline model? How does this go together with the concept of changing 
the pipeline model?

My personal view of AxKit2 looks like the following:
* AxKit2 is a input/output filter handler
* AxKit2-Input-Filter-Engine (=AxKit1 Plugins) is *one* Input-Filter
* AxKit2-Output-Filter-Engine (=AxKit1 Processors) is *one*
* AxKit2-Output-Transformers(=AxAddOutputTransformer) adds

I don't see any big advantage to design the axkit-pipeline as 
input/output filters. Another big advantage when AxKit2 is a mp2-filter 
is that the response handler could be any PerlResponse-handler which 
would at least contradict somehow the importance of XSP, doesn't it?
