    Ok, so, yes, I have an opinion about that.  Sadly, with the current implementation of
Stellar, we cannot cache the parse tree and then apply it after the fact.  It's just an artifact
of how we do the parsing: we actually execute the statement as we parse rather than constructing
an AST that can then be evaluated later given a message.
    I think this would be a GREAT modification to Stellar and one that I had on my mental
backlog for some time.  In fact, I took the opportunity as part of the profiler window DSL
to do it the right way (parse to an object that can then be cached and evaluated on multiple
sets of inputs without reparse).
    tl;dr: We can't do it now easily, BUT we should for multiple reasons:
    * code clarity - decoupling the stellar language from the generated parser code
    * performance - saving lexing and parsing
