Ok dokey, time for some fun questions.

    Is there a standard DBI module out there? I have my own one as part
of the OracleDB interface. It makes sense to have just one of them, no?
I'd like a bit more consistency in the current (rather feature-poor :)
interface - it should be possible to use the type code from the description
attribute as a argument to a method for building an arbitrary type.
I'd also like better date support - did anything come out of the long
discussion earlier in the year about this stuff?

Oracle stored procedures:
    I'm attacking the stored procedures and variable binding problem - it's
still not clear to me how, or why, it's failing. Once I have a 
solution, a beta test of oracledb will go onto my web pages. (yay)

    changes I'd like to see (some of these were posted to the list earlier
this year). note that connection.close() nukes cursors associated with the
connection. a more thorough DBI description. Maybe some examples?
