That's what I was thinking..
This would be a minimally-invasive and rather compatible method of pulling it off, esp. if we're looking to not mess up tens of thousands of plugins and bite off more than we can chew.

The only concern is that PREG is naturally a _regular_ expression tool, I'm not sure if SQL queries are actually to be considered "regular" or not.
However, even if PREG is out of the question, you can still easily (and lightly) create a balanced parser, though that would be several hundred times easier in another language :P
