[hibernate-dev] HHH-2403 - import.sql improvement

Last time I have been trying to improve the way that Hibernate extracts 
statements from "import.sql" script. My intention was to support 
multiline SQL instructions (HHH-2403), quoted strings, multiline 
comments etc. After developing quite simple ANTLR-based parser, I have 
realized that right now semicolons are not mandatory (at the end of each 
SQL statement). If there is no separator character (e.g. ';') between 
statements, the only possibility to resolve HHH-2403 is to apply a full 
SQL parser. But supporting all different dialects would be quite 
difficult... Is it acceptable to change the code, so that each statement 
must be ended with a semicolon (branch 4.0)?
