Hm, this might be a knock-out criterion for the usage of menu filters
or hooks in order to ask the user for a master file of a multi-file

No, because I don't know how to debug the filter function.  If it
would produce a backtrace or debugging buffer upon putting (error) or
(debug) into the filter function, I could see where it is called.
