Well, making them reserved keywords is not that great, so maybe the
lookahead thingy is better.  However, this patch introduces the third
and fourth uses of the "save the lookahead token" pattern in the
"default" switch cases.  Can we refactor that bit somehow, to avoid so
many duplicates?  (For a minute I thought that Andrew Gierth's WITH
ORDINALITY patch would add another one, but it seems not.)
