Option to OR attributes in custom filters

+3 votes
Custom filters allow attributes of a cache, either positive, negative or missing to be used as a filter, but only seem to work as an AND operation, can this be extended to be able to search with an OR operation, e.g. Swimming OR wading OR boat required, to give all water caches rather than just ones with all three attributes?

One work-around may be to run the search for swimming, load the results into VGPS, then run it again for wading, adding the results to the same VGPS, and then the same for boat required. Not ideal, but better than nothing.

Agreed, you can work around it, same as you can by running multiple PQs on the geocaching site, but would be nice not to have to work around it!
