 Replying to [comment:25 markjaquith]:
 > filosofo's suggestion of something like FQL (WPQL?) has appeal. You
 could do all of things I want to do, with that. You might need something
 to say "_but_no_children" for hierarchical taxonomies, but otherwise, it
 translates well to a simplified SQL-like language. I'm just not sure we're
 ready for that — it's a big step.

 A ''"WPQL"'' was exactly what I was showing a hypothetical for above but
 agree that it's a big step. It would take quite a while to get it right
 including having lots of people throwing advanced use-cases at it to make
 sure its design was robust before unleashing it on the world.

 v3.5? ;-)
