/** JSON DataFilter
 * This {@link DataFilter} walks an Object as if it was a call to {@link JSON#toString(Object)} and 
 * calls the protected methods 
 * {@link #filterString(String)},
 * {@link #filterNumber(Number)},
 * {@link #filterBoolean(Boolean)},
 * {@link #filterArray(Object, ClientImpl)} or
 * {@link #filterMap(Map, ClientImpl)} appropriate.
 * Derived filters may override one or more of these methods to provide filtering of specific types.
