   Please, by all means do.  I wrote the gsql-oracle backend in less than
an afternoon and only made it publically accessiable because no one else
had any Oracle backend out there as of Feb 1994.  
   I've spoken with the Oracle folks and I think they are really missing the
boat in customer support by collating and distributing public domain software 
when they are the ones who are supposed to be supporting their product.
   If you do rewrite it, please add secure inserts/deletes/etc.
