But let's just do the base thing first before going to much more
complicated endeavor, especially if this is supposed to be the first
patch for Christian. Also, one of the points of the SQL is the
compatibility so that's what we should strive for first, especially
given that the syntax of the jq is not compatible AFAICS.

I think this would be good as extension first and then we can see what
to do with it next (ie I agree with Pavel).
