I'll point out it's very easy to built a plugin using oracle's call  
I also suspect you could just use the FFI interface too, the OCI is  
quite simple to work with and
would give you more control if you want to only interface to oracle and  
support things like async
database calls.

See Visualworks oracle database interface as an example.
