Default bottom drain hop screen?

has anyone come up with a design to filter out the hops out of your boil kettle bottom drain system?

Yeah, bag the hops. A false bottom would work on whole hops.

a hop back with (or with rice hulls) can get the hops out too.

a spider and a 5 gallon paint strainer bag let everything move around in the boil nicely, and contain pellets reasonably well.
