I would like to build aggregate queries into osage. Things like MAX, SUM,
AVG, COUNT, and others. I'm not necessarily looking to return or use
objects here, just thinking of trying to potentially reuse the mapping
framework that already exists in some mutated form. Also, with this I'm
also thinking about implementing the GROUP BY clause. This functionality
will address some of the reporting issues I'd like to handle. I know
there are ways of processing SQL directly, but I'd just like to make use
of the mapping a bit more.
Has anyone thought this through or implemented this in some form? I know
this change would cause quite a few changes and I was wondering if anyone
else had any implementation thoughts on this?
