Hi Niclas!

Sorry I have not been of much use lately.
The job-giving-bread-on-the-table-requiring some attention.

I agree that defaulting to everything being queryable is a lousy default.

Beginning from scratch today, I would have preferred the opposite
default, and an @Indexed annotation.
The opposite default, and i think it better communicates the machinery

In a distant future we could then consider adding (optional) attributes
to the annotation, such as

@Indexed(name="login" order=1)

@Indexed(name="employee" order="1")

Property<String> name();

@Indexed(name="login" order=2)

Property<String> password();

@Indexed(name="employee" order="2")

Association<Company> company();


Property<String> email();

acting as a hint that we should expect queries by name-and-password,
name-and-company or by email.
Some implementations might be able to use these hints to improve

But I am more uncertain whether we should switch the default now or be
bound by the old decision.
