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...
