The current situation is that we lack a query page in the AppDB. This 
needs to be rectified.

One of the main reasons I have not addressed this because as soon as it 
is created it will be called inadequate, and no matter the amount of 
work  put into it it will continue to be a source of complaints. (Yes 
thats cinical but it's from experience based on the complaints about the 
query page for bugzilla ). So I know it should be done but am personaly 
not motivated to do it. ;^{
