I spent some time trying to track it down, searching IRC logs and the  
list archive, but couldn't find anything concrete, just oblique  

I'm fairly sure I remember the syntax being discussed on the list, but  
I'd had no luck finding it.

IIRC it used the AGGREGATE keyword. It's possible that Eric showed it  
on a laptop at a F2F, and it was never sent to the list.
