Well, contains 
description of Dictionary API and new TSLexeme->flags: TSL_FILTER
If dictionary returns only one lexeme with TSL_FILTER flag, then that 
lexeme will be used as an input for the subsequent dictionaries in the chain.

I'm not sure, how to incorporate this into current documentation, since there
is no built-in filtering dictionary. Probably, it'd be nice to add filtering option
to simple dictionary to illustrate this feature.

Unfortunately, I'm busy-busy :(
