Thanks for the tip! I had hoped there was some kind of well hidden buffer pointer to do some pointer arithmetic.

One problem I stumbled into with the counter filter:

If optimal_buffer_size() returns 0, write() is called with 1 byte buffers. In my case this increased the program runtime from 8 seconds to 4 minutes.
Returning a larger value solved this issue for my use case.
