Comment (by majelbstoat):

 I believe he means that you could do something like this:

 class Mywpdb extends wpdb {

 function query($query) {
   str_replace('SELECT', 'SELECT DISTINCT', $query);


 $mywpdb = new MyWpdb();
 $mywpdb->get_results("SELECT id FROM post WHERE name like '%filosofo%'");

 which would only get you distinct results.  Not a good example obviously,
 but you get the idea.  Nevertheless, I also would like the extra
 flexibility that this filter would provide.
