A lot of people have talked about it over the years, but nobody has
really spent much time to *do* it.

I also seem to recall that a third-party has built a
proprietary/private backend against Oracle.

I think that you'll find a lot of interest, and people willing to
discuss the concept, provide suggestions, etc. I just doubt that
you'll find many willing to dig in on the coding (or it would have
been done by now).

If you're going to do this, then I'd suggest we create a branch for
you, and you work on it in the main repository. That would provide the
most review and feedback for your work.
