Well the only Case tool I know and use inserts SET TERMs without trouble. It is
the sort of thing a decent case tool does, I thought.

And I recall that Oracle also requires specific changing of the terminator when
it parses triggers and SPs, so we are at least in illustrious company, although
it is not a role model I would recommend.
