Superclass for classes that have a $filter() method such as Appenders and Loggers. See EventFilter for details.

NOTE: This is an abstract class. Abstract classes cannot be instantiated directly, but are exported for package developers that want to extend lgr - for example by creating their own Appenders or Layouts. Please refer to the see also section for actual implementations of this class.
