[antlr-interest] Is it possible to treat a non-literal like a literal?

I'm still working on that IMAP nonsense.
Basically my problem is parsing something like this:
001 UID FETCH 1:* (BLAH UID BLAH)
The first appearnces of 'UID' is a command, the second is a string.
The way I've been doing things so far, 'UID' is a literal (as are all
commands). It looks like I need to do something else, because I want
any appearence of a command name after the actual command name to be
treated as a string.
I suppose I could replace every reference to UID and other commands
parser with some sort of ugly lookahead that verifies the text
says 'UID' and than parse it as a string instead of a literal (the
just get discarded anyway).
That sounds pretty ugly, though. Is there another way?
