That was my intent in making ParserFilter a subinterface of Parser.
Here's how an application can do what you want:

	Parser p;
	ParserFilter pf;
	p = new RealParser();
	pf = new FooFilter();
	p = pf;
	pf = new BarFilter();
	p = pf;
	pf = new BazFilter();
	p = pf;

If setParser returned "this" rather than void, then you could write the
cascade in fewer lines:

	Parser p = new RealParser();
	ParserFilter pf = new FooFilter().setParser(p);
	pf = new BarFilter().setParser(pf);
	pf = new BazFilter().setParser(pf);
	p = pf;

I will probably make that change to setParser.
