Yeah -- the problem with a SQL-looking solution is that we have to
actually parse strings (not sure if that's what you meant). The other
Criteria2 experiment was much more closely based on SQL grammer; it was
just cumbersome for the very simple stuff -- since you had to always set
up expressions, etc. It was extremely flexible, however. I am going to
look at the stuff that Ants (and Cameron) have been working with to see
how far off it is from the implementation I did last year. I think
there are some similarities.

Also, since this is for 2.0, we may be able to benefit from features
such as late static binding.
