Indeed there are!

Perhaps, just perhaps, with the PKovar/KHaley team that looks like it 
might be forming to take over from CKerr, who has stated he's looking for 
a pan project lead replacement after being inactive for some time, pan 
development might once again move forward, after being pretty well stalled 
for some years now.  Time will tell if they (or anyone else who has the 
skills and could contribute) will bring any major new features to pan, as 
this would certainly be, or just tweak around the edges and maintain 
compatibility with current dependency and build chain versions, tho even 
having someone reliably doing the latter is welcomed, but for the first 
time in a number of years, it /does/ look like there's some hope, once 
again, and this sorely missed feature, along with a few others, may yet 
appear in a pan version coming your way (even if it might be awhile).

But I didn't want to try to explain all that too, possibly overwhelming a 
newbie with details not at all particularly relevant to the filters he was 
asking about, in an already long post, and a reference to the situation 
without explaining it in some detail would have certainly only lead to 
further confusion and either false promises or unwarranted pessimism if I 
didn't sufficiently well explain the current situation, how it's still 
uncertain, yet far better already than it was even a month ago, as 2010 
turned into 2011.
