Well, I think the main problem is going to be shunting the query down
the right parsing track (SELECT versus utility-statement) early enough.
Making this work cleanly would be a bigger deal than I think you're

But yeah, it would be nicer if the executor didn't have to worry about
this.  +1 if you're willing to take on the work.
