Yeah, untyped syntax inside your statically typed language, what could be better.

As a query DSL I don't find a problem with that. It's like saying that query strings in urls are untyped so don't match well. In reality the gap between untyped->typed is super narrow. You almost always immediately scan the results of your query into typed struct fields.

What's preventing you from using a query builder?

Then the accurate thing to say is "a SQL query builder is the best way to interface with a RDBS"
