[Glass] Queries in Gemstone ...

Well, the simplest stuff would be: execute a query and give me back the
results - if indices can be used: use them (coding perspective).

If its too slow the programmer must have some hints from the query
executing machine like it is on the relational database - then the
programmer can add indices as wanted to improve the situation
(performance perspective).

That's the idea I would like to see ... and which is not trivial.
