If you've got a database that already efficiently support
select * from [foo] limit 100 offset 100
Then surely making changes to the syntax-tree so that it instead (or additionally) supports:
select * from [foo] make a effing slice from 100 to 200
That's a horrible example, because *renaming* identical functionality is just about the simplest change anyone could possibly make.
