Since the previous dicussion I've discovered Krasimir
Angelov's HSQL interface as part of his HTOOLKIT:

This has a uniform abstract interface similar to the one
discussed, apparently implemented for MYSQL, ODBC, and
PostgreSQL. I've only played with the MYSQL variant.

If possible, it would seem sensible to provide a consistent
interface for your Oracle binding. If not, it may be worth
persuading him to generalise the interface.

Then again, perhaps you knew about this already.
