I think you can do this through running a command (^R ^X) and then type in the name of a script that implements this menu of several filtering options. Nano is a simple editor, not a Swiss army knife that lets you do everything from making a cup of tea to phoning home. :) So if you want to filter a file, you do it either before starting nano, or you put nano to sleep (if you have only one terminal) and then filter it, or you make the proposed menued filtering script.

This can be also used to edit GPG encrypted files (not very secure way, but ok for some cases).

Hello, it can be useful to have option to set up few pipe filters which can be used to filter whole document...

eg.: gnu indent (this will add autoindent support), base64, uuencode, iconv, sed, perl,...

we can have array of strings like:
0:indend -linux
1:base64 -decode
2:sed -e 's/pico/nano/g'

and when some key is hitted, there can be popup menu which will let us choose from those pipes...
