We haven't done alot of DB interfaces.  Aqueduct mostly used 
existing DB interfaces.  We do have our own grungy ODBC interface
that was written only for Aqueduct that we'll make available.

We are de-productifying DCOracle.  We'll be supporting it
only for existing DCOracle customers and for our consulting
