On the contrary, I think we hit a stone wall on this question some time ago;
what's changed? No matter what we do with cql there will be clients that convert
from a user interface to cql and there will be users who key in cql directly.
And the invention of xcql as an alternative was a concession/compromise to keep
cql at least minimally user-friendly. I'm in favor of moving forward, quickly,
with some form of the proposal on the table.
