[WP_Query] Include post_type_query parameter to WP_Query

Description

My idea is to include a new parameter to WP_Query function that will be something like this:

$args = array(
	'post_type_query' => array(
		array(
			'post_type' => 'post',
			'tax_query' => array(
				array(
					'taxonomy' => 'people',
					'field' => 'slug',
					'terms' => 'bob'
				)
			)
		),
		array(
			'post_type' => 'book',
			'tax_query' => array(
				array(
					'taxonomy' => 'genre',
					'field' => 'slug',
					'terms' => 'comedy'
				)
			)
		),
		array(
			'post_type' => 'movie',
			'tax_query' => array(
				array(
					'taxonomy' => 'genre',
					'field' => 'slug',
					'terms' => 'comedy'
				)
			)
		)
	)
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

This will help to show multiple post types with specific taxonomies and terms without being in a conflict with each other...

I don't even want to wager how slow these queries would run

I don't get it - why can't you just run separate queries and combine the results yourself?

If this is a feature you feel strongly about, come back with a patch or sample plugin. I don't see anyone else picking this up otherwise.
