This all has to do with Haskell type trickery. If GHC can determine
the expected type of rows based on how you use it, it will work. If it
can't, it will complain about ambiguous types. If you want to select
from the Person entity, you can do something like:
rows <- runDB $ selectList ( :: [Filter Person])  0 0
