Yeah, we need special cases for lists of zero and one modes.

The condition-case thing is in a lambda form which goes into
ibuffer-filtering-alist, so I don't think there is a need to explicitly
invoke it when constructing a filter of an existing type.

I would be okay if it was just a matter of repeated ibuffer-filter-*
calls, but the fact that it produces error messages which then need to
be hidden makes it unacceptable, IMO.
