Sure, and that is of course (part of) the long-term plan.

Naturally, such a query language is chosen to make query optimization easy
(consider for example SQL). Nevertheless, for a first prototype, people
typically (in Java) just ship object code to do tests. Finally, it is a nice
fallback for tough queries you can't fit in the optimizable query language.

I have been considering something like prolog actually... ;-)
