True, but it's still a pretty huge change. I'd prefer to only backport
small fixes not serious rewrites.

Which is a valid point for backporting your changes but NOT for
including them into CVS.

I do not agree at all with this statement. IMO it's absolutely necessary
that ecpg's parser is in sync with the backend's parser. So essentially
we would not gain any flexibility as we'd have to release at the same
time anyway.
