It's possible that some generic filter operations can be cast in terms of pure-numpy operations, or composed out of existing filters available in scipy.ndimage. If you can describe the filter operation you wish to perform, perhaps someone can make some suggestions.

Alternately, scipy.ndimage.generic_filter can take an arbitrary python function. Though it's not really fast...
