This ER is for allowing QueryNew(rowData) shortcut, when rowData is array-of-struct. CF can generate the columnList from rowData's distinct list of key names.

Example: 
{code:java}
queryNew("foo,bar", "", [{foo="foo"},{bar="bar"}]) could be shortened to queryNew([{foo="foo"},{bar="bar"}]) 
{code}
creating a query w/ untyped columns "foo" and "bar".

Comments:

This seems to be a good use-case for NamedParameters as well, For Struct initialization the column queryName can become optional as the details can be fetched from keys defined in the struct. This should also be incorporated while implementing this feature.
