We already generally need a "where status = " on most queries so this
is just one more where clause.  I'm sure people protested about the
"status =" when it was introduced, but it makes sense in the long run.
 This is similar - we will grumble while we transition and love it in
the long run.

Maybe I'm just being overly tolerant, maybe this is the straw that
breaks the camel's back, but I don't think this is _that_much_ more
painful than the current query system that it necessitates a whole new
object API to replace SQL access.
