I support that proposal.

Hmm.... These comments are neither funny nor helpful. TMQL is a
complex language. And we're talking about two levels here:
- Simplifying TMQL (i.e cutting support for XML)
- Make TMQL more userfriendly (i.e allowing SQL-ish constructs and a
more modern syntax)
  Allowing the SQL-ish way to express the limit / offset clause does
not add much to the complexity of TMQL.

Best regards,
