Why?  You only apply the extra lookaheads where needed (code that
could be ambiguous). All other parts of the code will be parsed as
normal - as it is done now.

So far I know of only two examples where extra lookaheads need to be used.
  * wiki example where 'default' is used
  * my example to fix the inconsistent syntax for hint directives (deprecated).
