Thanks for the suggestion, but while it does add a sub to the template toolkit's namespace, it doesn't add it as a filter.

I'm looking for a way to use filters as described here:

To be able to run template code as:
 [% VAR | my_custom_filter %]
 [% FILTER my_custom_filter %]
 lots of text
 [% END %]

It seems this requires adding the filters in the template object creation step.
Didn't yet find a way to do it.
