Allow WP_Post to be filtered at instantiation

Currently it's possible to filter the results of wp_query->get_posts using either the 'posts_results' or 'the_posts' filters. There's no way to filter the results of the get_post function, however.

Providing a filter for when a WP_Post is instantiated would allow themes/plugins with custom post types to add properties and such when the post(s) are retrieved. Currently wrapper functions such as get_event_post have to be made. It would be great if the standard WordPress functions could be used and CPT results reliably structured.

Obviously this will need a test as well, and I'm still debating where the best place to put the filter is (as get_post doesn't always use WP_Post::get_instance), but I'm starting with a proof-of-concept.
