Having two parsers would be a nightmare to maintain.
If anything one could have one parser that handles oracle syntax and give
errors on such constructs unless some variable is set.
The question is how much of the problems that are pure syntax and what
needs deeper changes. My guess is that just changing some syntax will not
be enough to make many oracle program work.

Then they probably just wanted to chat but didn't know how to start a
conversation. A true geek problem?!? :-)
