[erlang-questions] Just curious - why is "query" a reserved word?

It's one of the most obvious choices of function name when dealing with 
persistent storage - and I notice that e.g. erlyweb has used q(), q1(), 
etc instead probably *because* query is a reserved word. So I'm curious 
as to why it is reserved?
