This is mainly a reminder to myself, but also an opportunity for query
language bikeshedding.

Currently the sexp query parser parses '(lastmod 1234)' as equivalent to
lastmod:1234..1234. This is reasonable enough, but leaves no easy way to
do the equivalent to lastmod:1234.. (the other one sided range
lastmod:..1234 is easy since 0 works on the left e.g. (lastmod 0 1234).

This could be fixed by

1) changing the semantics of the 1 argument (lastmod 1234)
2) re-using * as in (lastmod 1234 *)
3) introducing a new reserved atom, e.g. "max" (lastmod 1234 max)
