Has anyone already started to work with a query designer? Because this

Don't you think it should be done with bonobo controls from each provider?

One nice thing would be to write down (more in detail than what is in the doc)
what each schema is supposed to return, and see if everyone is happy with it.
When we have something accepted by all, we can update the docs and update/
write the implementations.
I can find some time to start writing what exactely the postgres provider
answers for each schema and then we can work from that. What do you think?

The main problems I see is for non DBMS providers to find good mappings
with the schemas...
