I've been reading Chris Date and Fabian Pascal on the deficiencies and non-relatinal nature of SQL. www.dbdebunk.com I'm just now learning scheme and it seems to me that with its clean mathematical underpinning (overarching mathematical orientation?) it would make an ideal language for truly relational database access/manipulation. Never having designed a language I would have NO IDEA what such a query language would look like.
