That's fascinating; when we wrote Tantalus, we were solely targetting
an old version of MySQL (so, for example, it rolls its own
transactions rather than depending on the database to have them).  Did
you have to modify it at all to get it to work with Oracle or did it
really just work?

Anyway, it's neat that somebody's getting use out of that project; I
think it turned both Colin and I off of O/R mapping for good :).
