Try using tiny_mce_before_init with a priority of 99. That would include 
the whole init array after all changes have been made by other filters.

function my_get_all_mce_settings($init_array) {


	return $init_array;
add_filter('tiny_mce_before_init', 'my_get_all_mce_settings', 99);

The above will break TinyMCE, access directly 
siteurl/wp-includes/js/tinymce/tiny_mce_config.php with FF to see the 

Also it would be a good idea to disable caching while testing, so set 
'disk_cache' => false, in tiny_mce_config.php.
