(delete-rows "foo" [])
generates the SQL
delete from foo where null
, which deletes 0 rows. Instead, I expect it to generate
delete from foo

I can't find the button to edit the issue, this happened on ver. 0.0.6

I actually think that would be rather dangerous. Imagine constructing the where parameters dynamically and accidentally passing in an empty sequence - you'd delete everything in the table.

I believe you can safely and deliberately get the effect you are looking for by doing either of these:

(delete-rows "foo" [true])
(delete-rows "foo" [1])

Given the lack of response to my comment and the fact that there is a clear and explicit workaround, I'm resolving this, declined.
