I can't go that path, as the data can't be moved (at this time) to a different
database.  It must continue to exist in the form that the legacy app expects
it in.  I'm attempting to provide a new-and-improved interface to the data.
Perhaps in time it will remove the need for the legacy interface, but not in
the near future.

Yes, I know I would need to create my own query engine.  In reality, that
engine would only need to map the SQL queries into the legacy system's queries.

Thanks for the reply.  I'll look into the SQL parsers in the projects you
mentioned.
