Redundant Filters

People matching the <(People) filter>
Events matching the <Events filter>
Places matching the <(Places) filter>
Repositories matching the <(Repositories) filter>
Media objects matching the <(Media) filter>
Notes matching the <(Notes) filter>

All the filters listed above effectively do nothing, or am I mistaken ? I think they are core features, so there may be a good reason to have them. Perhaps as an illustration of how to write a filter.

They are useful for boolean and combined operations at different stages. Do Not match, only one rule, all rules.

If you want to use a Filter more than once in a complex filter, this eliminates the need to write out the filter rules multiple times.

If you want to see examples of these filters in use, go to

These filter rules are very useful.

For example, I often use a 2 stage filter. The first filter to select the lines that I want, and the second filter to add spouses of everyone in the first filter. So the second filter has just 2 rules:
people matching <filter>
spouses of <filter> match
