SQL sucks for anything better than "select * from table where x = y;". SQL sucks for end-users. SQL sucks for ORMs.

In best practical solutions we spent several years advancing our own query langing in Request Tracker and now we're working on new re-incornation in Jifty.

We find it useful for rapid development, for end users, for serialization. It's sexy and knows more about relations than your DB.

This talk can be usfull for anybody building search capabilities in their modules and apps.
