Can I write a query which will find blockers ?

I'd like to find all issues which are blocking other issues and are not yet completed, however I cannot see any way to do this with the query language. Ideally what I would want would be something like this :

resolution IS EMPTY AND linkedIssues(issue, "blocks") IS NOT EMPTY

Is there some alternative method I can use to get this information ?

I'd be perfectly happy if it was a dashboard gadget rather than a query, but I can't see any gadgets which can do this either.
