I get your point. It's possible to add a logger filter more than once in the chain, assuming the name is not the same. I would argue that for any event to start at the Head in order for it to traverse all the filter is a bit spurious: such event is likely not to be process by any filter.
I'll see if adding a fireEvent() method in the head filter is not more 'consistent' with what we currently have for other events, and rename 'fire' to 'event'. Thanks !
