it's really any object out of the box, i think the sql linq stuff is
more of a query compiler, IMO sqlalchemy does that.

query = select(user_cols,









XML? meh hopefully I would never need it. :)

C# is my day job, and when I got my hands on LINQ back in January my
initial thought was "Finally I have list comprehensions!!!! day job is
fun again"

For the most part, I think C# is catching up.
