Allow DQL queries on Notes Document Collections, rather than just an entire DB

Currently, the FTSearch keyword (LotusScript) allows for performing searches on both a DB or a document collection. Include this feature with DQL so queries can be performed on document collections as well.

    Our use case is that we often create a document collection via a variety of methods, perhaps a DQL search, perhaps a view lookup, maybe even an FTSearch. Once we have a collection of records in place, we then wish to further refine the collection using a DQL search. Being able to perform an FTSearch on a collection has been a useful approach but now we would like to leverage the newer DQL queries instead.

    When dealing with larger collections, we'll use the FTSearch to reduce the number of records based on some keyword. It would be great if we could utilize DQL to perform even more specific reductions.

    What would be the benefit of doing this? Can you please provide an example?
