Here's a thread that might be interesting for anyone thinking of
implementing a DSEL for SQL:

I notice that most of this thread is going in the direction of trying
to replicate SQL syntax instead of doing something closer to normal
logic. I'd be much happier to use a syntax that just specifies "what
I want" rather than "how to get there." In some cases the library
could be responsible for conjuring up JOINs, for example, when that's
the most efficient approach.
