In order of precedence:
1) Some glue code to pass this data to GDA and then
get back a result set
2) Some code to easily define the field names (you've
already mentioned the field-picker GUI that you intend
to work on)
3) A GUI to easily create queries (though doing this
in Mergeant and saving the query in a way #1 can
recognize would definitely be preferable)
