OK.  I thought this would be the case, but on to the next questions:

IIRC, filter_relay, filter_recipient, and filter_sender are all run before 
filter_begin, and filter_recipient runs as the relay names each recipient, 
not after they've all been listed, correct?  So filter_recipient has no 
idea how many recipients there are.

So: If I get a message sent to two people, one of whom I want to skip 
filtering, I need to use stream_by_recipient.  However, that can't be 
called until *after* filter_recipient has run.  This means that the 
original message with both recipients will trip the logic in 
filter_recipient, and filtering will stop before it even gets to 

Is there someplace else where something similar to
