[erlang-patches] Reclaim the 'query' keyword

I want to reclaim the 'query' word for everyone to use. This word is 
much too important to keep it reserved forever. Use includes anything 
you can query, from databases to web services to hardware.

Since I was at it I also removed most of what remains from Mnemosyne. 
What's left is the :- operator, and its associated rules. I didn't want 
to remove these because they do relate to the Prolog origins of the 
language and this was a too big decision for me to take.

I tested most of the suites but since I wasn't able to run the test 
suite entirely because Mnesia was timeouting all the time, I may have 
forgotten something.

So please:

   git fetch git://github.com/essen/otp.git forget-mnemosyne


And keep me informed!
