Hi there,

I wanted get some feedback on what you thought about supporting ORDER BY and LIMIT for UPDATE statements.

Is there a reason this has not already been implemented?

This is not supported by any other database than mysql, so we cannot put it into DQL. It has to be vendor agnostic and uses SQL-92 as a standard.
