Indeed I do have plans. I also have general ideas about multiple joins,
but think the code probably needs refactoring first.

If there's anything you would like to be able to do with cdbi/sweet but
currently can't I'd be extremely interested in use cases and for preference
samples of "it would be nice if I can write this code and have it work". I
make no guarantees that anything will get added but I'll try and provide
extension hooks in the main code that makes it at worst a dozen-line
plugin :)
