Ok - I now have a very crude PHP implementation out there:

There is also an online demo for the Sakila sample database:

The implementation is just proof of concept.
It implements a reasonable subset of the MQL language (reads only for now)

The main objective of the project now is to get feedback mostly on
what people think about the concept.
If someone thinks it is interesting enough, perhaps we can get
together and discuss the viability of a drizzle plugin.

kind regards, and thanks in advance,
