I actually need to look at Casey's code and see what I can reuse. The 
efficiency of my version is not that great yet, but much more flexible. So 
I want to take Casey's code and optimize mine a little.

BTW, I just added a mailing list and a poll for ZOQL. Please go to 
http://demo.iuveno-net.de/iuveno/Products/ZOQLMethod and vote in the poll, 
so I can get an estimate of the general interest.

You mean, whether the system checks, if a property exists at all or is set 
to None? I think both would be no problem.

1. Property exists or not:

I could support a function, like: exists(Property)

   FROM Test
   WHERE exists(Property);

2. Property is set to None:

Simply use equal: Property == None
Note: That might work already? I have to check...

   FROM Test
   WHERE Property == None;
