I think custom SQL queries are in most cases a bad idea. You should use it
only if you really need it.
The drawbacks are that you don't rely on the WordPress abstraction methods
so you don't prevent some future changes on the database.
Plus, you don't use actions and filters placed by the WordPress core, so
plugins or themes you use won't be able to hook on them, and you probably
won't have the custom functionalities provided by those plugins / themes.
In case you *really *want and need to do this into one query, use the most
appropriate filter (like 'posts_where' or others) to re-write the tinyer
portion of the WP_Query.
