I don't see that it is weird not to be able to do this. The advantage is 
if we bring enhancements to the existing functionality. At the moment, 
in terms of TicketQuery vs Widget(TicketQuery, ...) we bring certain 
improvements but not all the functionality yet.

At some point, once we get feature parity, we could consider overriding 
TicketQuery so that it uses Widget(TicketQuery,...) instead.

Anyway, I'll try to commit the work soon and see where we are as it 
seems to be providing less controversy now given that discussion on this 
was limited.
