I'll be very interested to see what you come up with. Doing a second
javascript implementation of the query UI was something we always wanted
to do, though I've largely been convinced that we should be spending
that time on a simpler search UI instead.

horrible duplicate code of code from the TicketSQL library that should
be refactored back into that.
