I guess so :-)

The readmes of DCOracle and ZOracleDA mention environment variables that have to be set to local Oracle paths, which seems to imply that you can only connect to a DB on the same machine. Is this correct?

You could use an ODBC-ODBC bridge or one of the ODBC multi-tier
driver kits together with mxODBC and the recently announced
Zope DA for it.
