Lightroom SDK: Support export filters in on-the-fly exports via LrExportSession

Try as I have, I've not been able to do an export via exportSession:doExportOn[New|Current]Task method and include exportFilter in the export session's export settings. It would be useful to be able to do that. For example, my plugin ExportManager which allow one to start multiple exports at the same time (or back-to-back) - if user specifies an export preset that includes export filters, the export filters are ignored. Also web outputs which create multiple exports (for thumbnails and main view as example), can not use export filters for the various copies, since exporting of said copies is done via the aforementioned method. If I'm wrong, and there is a way - please advise.

If supprting the inclusion of export filters in ad-hoc (plugin initiated) exports (i.e. via LrExportSession) seems out of reach, consider something like:

..exportViaPreset( exportPreset )

instead.

Where the export preset's export filters are in effect..

The ability to detect when said export was complete, and whether successful or not, would be highly desirable.

Preferably in Lr6 ;-).

Thanks for consideration,
Rob
