Simply adding new filters before thinking ahead is something I would
rather avoid, though. If we find a better UI later (maybe something like
the split maintainers page I suggested), we cannot silently drop the
co-maintainer filter again because links and scripts might already use
it. For the same reason, we still have that legacy "Exact name" filter
instead of being consistent with archweb now.

Make a plan, then implement -- not the other way round...
