At the Wikimania Hackathon there was a discussion about Quarry and PAWS and how they could be improved. One suggestion was as I understand the Etherpad https://etherpad.wikimedia.org/p/Wikimania-2021-PAWS-and-Quarry-discussion to create something like VizQuery for querying Quarry. Has someone of you expierence with creating an user interface for an specific query. So that it is possible to enter values into a form instead of editing the SQL-Text of the Query directly. Such an Interface should include possible values that can be selected through a drop down menue or with a search function. I think a drop down menue is enough. From my point of view this is helpful if it exists.

User Interface for Queries
I too think that having autocomplete for tables and columns, as well as explanations about what each of them are, is probably already a very significant improvement. Can probably be built quite easily with CodeMirror. Not visual, but it's a step forward.
