Bummer. Is this feature planned at any point?
I have some old code that does this...
There is a drop down box with all the fields in it. When you click on
it it fills the "operatators" dropdown according to the type of the
field (greater than, contains etc). There is a box for the param.
After the param there is a dropdown box with "and, or" as options. If
you want another param you click and or or and it creates a new row
for the next filter. In your gui it would be easy enough to always
have a dropdown after the params with an AND or OR options.
For something even more sophisticated you can look at the jqgrid
advanced search functionality.
> Now if you want to 'AND' or 'OR' ALL your filters, then you can pass the
> 'OR' as a param and hack smtg in the two adapters, quite easy. (both AR and
> Mongoid support it).
Ideally I could pick and choose like date > X AND date < Y or date is
null but I can see where grouping might be handy too.

If I have time I'll poke at it for a while and see what comes out.
