I'll try see about a full solution for this later on.
The basic algorithm is that when you hit 'SET' you need to check the
next token.

If it's a '(' then it's a column type, else it's a reserved word.
There was a big batch of stuff i've been working on in the parser system
anyway. I'll see about getting some of it in soon, even if it's just
that bugfix for the moment.
