for internal VTI genration

> Our application wishes to generate some custom VTI implementations.  The VTI package
has an interface called IQualifyable, which when implemented seems like it should pass all
query parameters for the table.  It actually does this, but when implemented by the VTI, effectlively
removes all "WHERE" clause filtering from the SQL engine processing the VTI table request.
 Implementing this interface requires the VTI to handle all such processing.
> As an example, if you had a VTI with table columns "one", "two" and "three", and wanted
to do some special processing for one of the columns by intercepting the IQualifyable interface
(say, column "one"), processing for all three columns would be the responsibility for the
> I would propose one of two improvements to resolve this issue:
>    1. Allow the IQualifyable interface to simply have a "crack at it" to see what the
query parameters are, and then allow additional selection processing to occur by the SQL engine,
>    2. Implement a new marker interface or sub-interface of IQualifyable which allows
for the new semantic of intercepting the query parameters provided--similar to IQualifyable
but allowing filtering to occur
