We're approaching the point where you could do much of this utilizing
the reference interpreter.  However, it was designed as a reference
implementation rather than a performant one.  We're probably a few
months away from you being able to do this in earnest with the fully
distributed execution engine.

There is a decent amount of work to be done but a lot of people are
working on it.  We need both code and non-code help.  An initial help
would be writing up a set of requirements for your application in more
detail.  Then we can discuss how/if we'll achieve them with Drill and
what steps will need to be taken to accomplish each.
