/**
 * Define content filters.
 *
 * User submitted content is passed through a group of filters before it is
 * output in HTML, in order to remove insecure or unwanted parts, correct or
 * enhance the formatting, transform special keywords, etc. A group of filters
 * is referred to as a "text format". Administrators can create as many text
 * formats as needed. Individual filters can be enabled and configured
 * differently for each text format.
 *
 * This hook is invoked by filter_get_filters() and allows modules to register
 * input filters they provide.
 *
 * Filtering is a two-step process. First, the content is 'prepared' by calling
 * the 'prepare callback' function for every filter. The purpose of the 'prepare
 * callback' is to escape HTML-like structures. For example, imagine a filter
 * which allows the user to paste entire chunks of programming code without
 * requiring manual escaping of special HTML characters like < or &. If the
 * programming code were left untouched, then other filters could think it was
 * HTML and change it. For many filters, the prepare step is not necessary.
 *
 * The second step is the actual processing step. The result from passing the
 * text through all the filters' prepare steps gets passed to all the filters
 * again, this time with the 'process callback' function. The process callbacks
 * should then actually change the content: transform URLs into hyperlinks,
 * convert smileys into images, etc.
 *
 * For performance reasons content is only filtered once; the result is stored
 * in the cache table and retrieved from the cache the next time the same piece
 * of content is displayed. If a filter's output is dynamic, it can override the
 * cache mechanism, but obviously this should be used with caution: having one
 * filter that does not support caching in a particular text format disables
 * caching for the entire format, not just for one filter.
 *
 * Beware of the filter cache when developing your module: it is advised to set
 * your filter to 'cache' => FALSE while developing, but be sure to remove that
 * setting if it's not needed, when you are no longer in development mode.
 *
 * @return
 *   An associative array of filters, whose keys are internal filter names,
 *   which should be unique and therefore prefixed with the name of the module.
 *   Each value is an associative array describing the filter, with the
 *   following elements (all are optional except as noted):
 *   - title: (required) An administrative summary of what the filter does.
 *   - description: Additional administrative information about the filter's
 *     behavior, if needed for clarification.
 *   - settings callback: The name of a function that returns configuration form
 *     elements for the filter. See callback_filter_settings() for details.
 *   - default settings: An associative array containing default settings for
 *     the filter, to be applied when the filter has not been configured yet.
 *   - prepare callback: The name of a function that escapes the content before
 *     the actual filtering happens. See callback_filter_prepare() for
 *     details.
 *   - process callback: (required) The name the function that performs the
 *     actual filtering. See callback_filter_process() for details.
 *   - cache (default TRUE): Specifies whether the filtered text can be cached.
 *     Note that setting this to FALSE makes the entire text format not
 *     cacheable, which may have an impact on the site's overall performance.
 *     See filter_format_allowcache() for details.
 *   - tips callback: The name of a function that returns end-user-facing filter
 *     usage guidelines for the filter. See callback_filter_tips() for
 *     details.
 *   - weight: A default weight for the filter in new text formats.
