An "acceptable" solution would need several things:
- new -S option on command line weather to accept this syntax
modification (-SE ?)
- scanner improvement (it should be scanner who stores last scanned
token with all associated info) - this is, actually the most
problematic part of solution
- bunch of test-cases
- some free time to implement it
- lot of good will to accept it :-)
