That's exactly what I was looking for, but for HDBC instead. Since OCI
bindings for HDBC don't seem to exist, I guess I'll have to write my
own instead.

Thanks for the tip. I really wasn't aware that HSQL already had OCI
bindings. I'll take a look at the HSQL code, steal some ideas from it
and hopefully make my little HDBC driver production ready some day.
