[antlr-interest] Syntactic predicates in lexer

This is probably a very simple question, but I can't get syntactic
predicates to work in lexer rules:

  : ':=' => AssignmentOperator
  | ':' => KeywordMarker

  :    ':'

  :    ':='

What I want to achieve is to have the lexer produce an assignment operator
':=' token instead of a keyword marker ':' whenever possible.
The error is  "unexpected token: ':='" at AssignmentOperatorOrKeywordMarker
rule definition.

Any help would be welcomed.
