Yeah I agree we really need to keep Drupal lean. I wouldn't want to see 
the entire Views package integrated as-is. I wouldn't mind some of the 
functionality included though that would give an easy way to alter some 
core queries. One that comes to mind is the comment query. Sometimes 
there are needs for extra data from the user table to be pulled in, and 
currently there really isn't an easy way to alter that query in 

I've thought in the past about a hook_query_alter, but that could really 
add some overhead - especially on sites with a large number of queries.
