 mist, I'm just now checking back in and see that we haven't made any
 progress in understanding each other.  What you said is true for SELECT
 DISTINCT *, but the last patch I posted was a SELECT DISTINCT

 Sometimes there are reasons to use LEFT JOINs, and those can lead to
 duplicate post names/IDs in the result set.

 From your previous suggestion, I think we can agree on the validity of
 this new patch's API even if we don't agree on the validity of SQL
 statements it might facilitate.

 The separate filters getarchives_distinct and getarchives_fields follow
 the precedent of posts_distinct and posts_fields.  The default-merged args
 array is passed as a 2nd argument.  I'm not applying these filters to the
 monthly/weekly/etc. archive queries, but future archive types could apply
 them as needed.
