I have added a comment explaining the postgres pecularity.

The branch looks a bit messy with commits for both "set scrollable_cursor
to off for oracle driver" and "rollback disabling scrollable _cursor for
oracle". Why not add the code as commented out?

There are two "drop procedure after testing" that could be squashed.

The last two commits "postgresql test case for 64bit bg for param_query"
and bine "explain postgres pecularity for maram query out paramters" should
be squashed.

Can you do this cleanup or should I?

It would be nice to have a better working test case for postgres, but I have
pounded my forhead against a wall for a while trying to procuce one and it
indeed seems that postgres does not return anything in out parameters, just
in the result set. There are indications for that in the documentation for
the procedural langguage 'sql', at least.

It would also be nice if it was possible to procduce a test case that does
not use stored procedures since they are so implementation specific. Do you
think it would be possible to use something like "SELECT .. INTO ?" for
that. I have tried with no success...
