Well, then you're going to suffer a slow and lingering death under a 
mound of OracleStorage woe.

Seriously, it's turnip, hasn't been supported in YEARS...

Well, here's a plan:

load balancer
|             |
ZEO Client 1  ZEO Client 2
|             |
ZEO storage server with OraceStorage mounted
(seriously, you're gonna suffer!)

You can then have multiple ZEO storage servers running off Oracle, with 
one or more clients attached to each, leaving the load balancer and 
Oracle as the single points of failure.

For the record, your situation is crazy, and you will pay an extremely 
high penalty for it...


PS: Did I mention what you're trying to do is nuts? ;-)
