It's not about readability, SQL is very elegant and readable.

it's about composing the needed query _programmatically_ with minimum
fuss, adding conditions and operators
as they are needed, conditionally or in batches.

Whuc, in current Rails, IS clunky.

I think I've seen a Query plugin somewhere on the web but I just
can't trace it. Maybe it was announced on the list as well.
