Please note the code is untested -- I tossed that together based on an
existing plugin that does something different, but related.  So run the
thing before posting it as working.

And actually, now that I look at it, I think I'm doing it wrong there. 
Looks like it filters the data that's *returned* from the server, not the
data sent *to* the server.


It's in the right direction, but needs a touch of work....
