Sorry, the underlying question was to know if it has potential to be reused
(and improved) or not.

gASQL can certainly benefit from having a parser and I was intending to look
for an existing one. So, basically I'm interested in knowing what are the
problems with existing parsers.

Well, I guess that with the current plans of having a SQL parser part of
gnome-db this is not an issue. Just make a good one :)

Actually, it has just come to my mind another issue. ODBC is a well
established standard. It would be interesting to have this parser compatible
with the ODBC SQL dialect. That would make easier for existing ODBC apps to
use libgda (depends on how ODBC is being used ("embeded" or "dynamic" -
don't have present the correct terminology).

Well, it's a start :) If just I had the time...
