  One step further, if you have an air intake on your dryer, duct it
outside.
It will bring in hot dry air and not take it from your house in the summer.

  I personally like to filter the dust out of the air.

 There is less dust outside than inside typically. The dust is from dead skin
and material shedding of carpets and clothing.

  It is not so much a preference for inside or outside air. If you filter
the air going into the dryer, whether coming from inside or outside
then logic says that you should have cleaner clothes out of the dryer.
  Perhaps a screen and furnace like element followed by a foam or
folded paper or hepa type filter. That should keep out lots of lint
dust and detritus. However, I went and looked at my dryer and
obviously found a vent out pipe but no vent in pipe.
