You can't execute the query until you see it but if you see the 
query+which variables are in the bindings, you can deduce whether 
certain execution strategies are possible and even start executing for 
data seen so far. If you see the data first, you can't decide on the 
execution until you see the query part.

By the way, as we move towards LC it's probably more efficient to tie 
comments and questions back to the text.
