 Fix differing log filters of streams from writing to same writer/path.

 Since WriterFrontend objects are looked up internally by writer type and
 path, and they also expect to write consistent field arguments, it could
 be the case that more than one filter of a given stream attempts to
 write to the same path (derived either from $path or $path_func fields
 of the filter) with the same writer type.  This won't work, so now
 WriterFrontend objects are bound to the filter that instantiated them so
 that we can warn about other filters attempting to write to the
 conflicting writer/path and the write can be skipped.  Remote logs don't
 appear to suffer the same issue due to pre-filtering.

 Addresses #842.
