No. double quote is also allowed in double-quoted representation using
by two double-quotes.
if s_s_names = '"node""hoge"' then standby name will be 'node"hoge'.

I think that lexer can pass both INT and NAME as char* to parser, and
then parser regards them as integer or char*.
It would be more simple.

Thank you for giving lexer and parser example but I'm not sure that it
makes thing more easier.
It seems to make thing more complex.

Attached patch handles parameter using similar way as postgres parses SQL.
Please having a look it and give me feedbacks.
