In MySQL times we've tried to replace a parser. Twice.
Antony has spent a year on that - that was one of the attempts.
We're still using the old one, so neither project was a success.
And Oracle started "parser refactoring" in 5.7, but they're doing it
piece-wise now, not trying to replace everything at once. And they'll
have to stay with bison this way.
What I mean - we very much want to use a new parser. We really do.
But it's just such a huge project :(
