About unary/binary: I had the same thought while sketching out a state machine. Obviously you have to keep some context to know which is which. I'm thinking that brute-forcing and just treating such an expression as a number is acceptable for this log analysis. I mean,

select 5 + 1; select 6; select 8 + 1+-5;

From the point of view of log analysis, those statements are all similar. Selecting a number is selecting a number, mush them all together and report on them in aggregate.

Of course that's not strictly true. You might have a silly application that constantly does "select 5" and not so frequently does "select 5 + 5" and you want to be able to distinguish them so you can find the offending code that's causing the first query. But that's a corner case.
