I've checked the site and there are obviously MySQL and Postgre-Drivers 
available in the src-Package, but, and that is the advantage of libdbi, 
for commercial Drivers like Oracle, you have to pay for the Drivers from 
easysoft. (Oracle, 1 Machine, 1200 pounds)

If we start off getting the libdbi to work with all those more or less 
commercial RDBMs it would be a big advantage getting it for free ;-)

Kind regards,
