For the sake of saying again, I already have a recursive-descent
parser for PostgreSQL written in a PCCTS grammar.  It's something I
started writing years ago, but I'd be willing to consider open
sourcing it if the PostgreSQL community will really entertain the
thought of switching.

Unfortunately, this discussion usually ends up with, "why would we
want to change what we have now when it already works?"
