Until now, we always found workarounds if problems occured. One major
problem was getting stored procedures to work with Zope (german NLS
environment). Our workaround for that is really ugly and i would feel
much better, if I was able to use "DCOracle 2 Stored Procedure" objects
instead of embedding code into our Zope-Products.

Depends on future projects, their size and budget. ATM unfortunately not.

knowledges are strong enough for that kind of software :(
