need query composition module
need a module that can combine the results of multiple query screens into a
single pathquery document for submission to the query execution engine. We
agreed in March that this could be essentially a boolean AND (INTERSECT) among
the different query types (text, taxonomic, spatial, etc), but it needs to be
possible. The user interface for the query component might be a series of
tabbed panes ina dialog, so the entity that creates the dialog might also be the
one that combines the queries.

Done. Queries can now be composed using the API found in the Query class, and
the QueryDialog class is able to combine queries from the multiple query
composition tabs into a single unified pathquery, which can be serialized as XML
and reloaded into the QueryDialog when needed (for revisions, etc). Will need
to add the spatial query tab into this functionality when it is developed.
