As part of an effort to update the old TMQL requirements document[1] I
will be starting a series of threads dedicated to new requirements as
well as changes to the existing ones. This is the first in that series.

Proposed new requirement:

  - "It should be possible to implement TMQL efficiently on top of
    existing database systems. In particular, it should be possible to
    compile TMQL queries to equivalent SQL queries where SQL has the
    necessary functionality to do so."

Comments, anyone?
