Why do we need this prefix?
You must patch your Lua to compile something that exploits token filters.
And patching interpreter is like signing a
Lets say that I find this class filter usefull and start using it alot.
Later a new release of lua comes out, which might have a new keyword,
class, thus causing the class filter to change and renders all code
written for it invalid until updated. So I'd say, as long as we don't
write a whole lot of code depending on a special filter, there's no real
need for a prefix. But it's when the experiment turns out to be usefull
(though still with a patched up version of lua) that /might/ cause
headaches later on..
I'm not overly enthusiastic about a common prefix, but I can see its
use. And of course, no one's enforcing it, it's just a mere suggestion.
I find dsilvers macro filter quite good, there the new keywords to be
used is defined at the beginning, so you can easily change them to
whatever *single* <name> tokens you want.
