It will probably not work out of the box with Oracle (unless postgres 
followed oracle steps more closely than I would have thought).

However the oracle sql compat should be put in the appropriate 
logilab.database submodule.

We started from scratch with sqlserver (2005) three years ago and there 
was definitely some support work involved, but I suppose "Oracle 
infrastructure with support for it" means you know oracle-sql well 
enough to make the necessary adaptations.

Budgeting that in advance might be the trickiest part.

Anyway, we will happily take your patches :)
