FWIW we had to interface with Oracle 9i recently and it was very
painless with OTP's odbc + UnixODBC framework + Easysoft's commercial
(1K euro per machine) Oracle driver (which plugs into UnixODBC).

Possibly this will be useful information for an archive-searcher in
the future. :-)

P.S. SQL databases are pretty cool.
