Query function

The query function is the user-provided function that we execute to compute the value of a derived query. Salsa assumed that all query functions are a 'pure' function of their dependencies unless the user reports an untracked read. Salsa always assumes that functions have no important side-effects (i.e., that they don't send messages over the network whose results you wish to observe) and thus that it doesn't have to re-execute functions unless it needs their return value.
