oh yes, i call that filters, but are merely appenders.

oh, you almost got me there.. i did not considered these << operators
when designing. mainly because of their annoying syntax. i am simple
man i prefer that one of printf :) (or boost::format)
so i took approach more in the style of type-safer printf using
variadic templates combined with classic macro-witchery.
i have to take a very close look on John's library to find out where
lies the differences in interface. perhaps there won't be any.
definitely my planned added value is run-time efficiency (with focus
many thanks for you attention,
