filtering. WFS server uses QgsExpression (QGIS side filtering) while WMS
takes the filter and sets the subset to the provider (db side filtering).
So it could be done by switching to QgsExpression depending on the
filter format (pull requests welcome). Data provider syntax still needs
to be supported because this kind of filtering is more powerfull and
