Are you suggesting to change the filter to accept an int rather than a
float? That would break compatibility with the previous filter.

Alternatively, we add an option taking an int, as alternative to the
current option. Ideally we should also add named option support, once
we have support for shorthand so we don't need clumsy wrapper for
keeping backward compatibility.

Patch updated, now making use of dsputil.
