Perhaps I'm missing something here: why is compatibility with Oracle
here particularly worth worrying about? Supporting the same
functionality as Oracle is good, but ISTM supporting the exact same
syntax is far less important. Anyone porting non-trivial PL/SQL to
PostgreSQL will have bigger fish to fry than doing s/=>/AS/ or
what have you.
