Custom Document Library Filter

Hi All,

I have a client requirement to implement a custom filter in the Document Librarary's  left navigation pane. Users should be able to filter the content under Document Library by Content Type and their respective metadata.

While going through the Alfresco.component.BaseFilter implementation, it looks like it will work only with anchor tags (<a>), but we are planning to implement the custom filter component using checkbox controls. Basically, the filter query will keep building when user selects/deselects the checkboxes.  Also, how can we support multiple hierarchies in the Filter UI as shown below

Content Type -1
     Metadata-1
     Metadata-2
Content Type -2
      Metadata-1
      Metadata-2

I understand that the Base Filter could be extended to achieve the above, but  just wanted to hear your thoughts.

Thanks
