Most of these are selects with various tests, which are not too hard to convert using multiple
queries and UNION.

There are some that change or delete and that is giving me pause for thought. Maybe the only
way is multiple queries in 
a TRANSACTION, but that causes complications building the CHANGED and DELETED result tables.

Also a timely reminder to implement "!". I currently recognise it but don't follow through in
the join.

And I bet you had fun with this one:
