Could you eloborate a bit more about the query part? I've re-read your
email a few times and looked at your experimental interface, but I can't
seem to get my head around the query building part.
In the end it would be very cool if I could use the URL to access this
behaviour...sort of a poor man's API ;)
All the best,
