Yes, I considered that as my first option, but tentatively ruled it out
given the general unreliability of the network between these machines. Zope
will have to be getting data from this DB almost constantly. I'm not
prepared to count on accessing Oracle directly to make everything fly. Note:
It's not Oracle's problem, but it seems to be rather less than ideal system
administration on the part of the folks with contract with.
