I haven't read this entire thread, but I might also just interject here
that HDBC supports ODBC (on Windows, and on Linux/Posix platforms via
unixODBC, iODBC, or similar), which may be another avenue for you to
try.  I'm sure there are ODBC Oracle drivers out there, and so if you
have your ODBC layer working, you get Haskell support easily.
