Filtering results in a plugin (on_result hook) possible? #1737

I'm working on a plugin that is supposed to filter the results from the engines based on certain criteria i can check in the plugin.

I use the on_result hook, which works fine for changing results as seen in the remove_tracker plugin, but it seems i can not remove certain results in this hook.

Is there a way to make this happen i did not see?
It would be nice if we could just add a result['filtered'] = True or do a return null in the on_result hook to let results disappear from the results page.

I currently solved it with a workaround by specifying a different template with a "filtered" = true on the result, which if it's true is not shown by this template. However, this means that my plugin needs to provide a template for each theme there is in searx to let this work for all themes.

Any hints?

Current prototype code is here:
