Will do.  I have a nice little Sun box here running Apache, PHP and Oracle
and am happy for it to become the Oracle test environment for GL.  I also
have a somewhat overworked Oracle DBA here who I can convince to get
distracted on something like this :)

Very very very much so.  Indeed, from what I understand, it may be possible
to effectivly dovetail the postgresql and oracle setups, as the db
environments are very simular ... at the least, oracle can be dumbed down a
little to suit it - atleast much easier than making oracle work within a
mysql type environment.

Just need oracle to have an 'autoincrement' trigger :)
