Add filter to all sidebar widget content

I'm looking for opinions of other people here before proposing an approach for this.

What I'm missing, as far as widgets are concerned, is a filter for changing widget content. I would suggest something along the lines of a filter for the content in WP_Widget's display_callback method.

Using this, small changes could be made to widgets while still maintaining upgradability when the plugin, core or theme updates the widget — something that is not the case when extending the widget and overriding the widget method.

Hello Jesper800, thanks for the report.

Using this, small changes could be made to widgets

Could you explain this a bit more? Which changes would you like to do?
Can't you use the widget_display_callback filter?

No activity in 7 months, and the widget_display_callback filter should suffice here.
