It would be interesting to see how far Swift’s syntax can be pushed to create a cleaner syntax for queries. I’m thinking of C#’s LINQ, which is really sweet. Some LINQ stuff can be replicated in Swift, I believe, but there are parts of it that rely on a super-powerful C# feature where a function can receive a parameter in the form of a parse tree of the expression. (Sort of like LISP macros.)
