Yes, I can remember that we haven't yet decided on the final name for
the filter translator.  By sticking to ``filter'' I am not trying to
supersede this decision; there just has to be a name by which to call
this translator, so I chose ``filter'' as the most obvious one.  I
don't think it would be very difficult to rename it once we consider
that appropriate.

Also, IIRC, the filter is expected to be run via symbolic links and
extract the name of the translator to be filtered out from its command
line arguments (I mean argv[0]); in this case the real name of the
filter is not extremely important, since the final user will rarely
use that name.
