The problem with all these "New and Improved" things (when they finally work the bugs out ... IF they finally work the bugs out) is that there appears to be a move away from SQL-ish syntax toward the calling of a vast number of procedures with a whopping array of possible arguments. I think, with Oracle's current path of development we will, in the future, instead of "analyze table ...." have "exec DBMS_STATS.ONE_OF_273_POSSIBLE_CALLS(arg1,

arg2, arg3, arg4, arg5, arg6, arg7, arg8, arg9, arg10, arg11, arg12, arg13,
arg14, arg15, arg16, arg17, arg18, arg19, arg20, arg21, arg22, arg23, arg24,
arg25, arg26, arg27, arg28, arg29, arg30, arg31, arg32, arg33, arg34, arg35,
arg36, arg37, arg38, arg39, arg40, arg41, arg42, arg43, arg44, arg45, arg46,
arg47, arg48, arg49, arg50, arg51, arg52, arg53, arg54, arg55, arg56, arg57,
arg58, arg59, arg60, arg61, arg62, arg63, arg64, arg65, arg66, arg67, arg68,
arg69, arg70, arg71, arg72, arg73, arg74, arg75, arg76, arg77, arg78, arg79,
arg80, arg81, arg82, arg83, arg84, arg85, arg86, arg87, arg88, arg89, arg90,
arg91, arg92, arg93, arg94, arg95, arg96, arg97, arg98, arg99, arg100)".

Do you get the impression that Oracle is just too damn lazy to update their syntax parser?
