YAQL: Yet Another Query Language

YAQL (Yet Another Query Language) is an embeddable and extensible query language, that allows performing complex queries against arbitrary objects. It has a vast and comprehensive standard library of frequently used querying functions and can be extend even further with user-specified functions. YAQL is written in python and is distributed via PyPI.
