Re: OEM or lots of code?

Chris,

I think this is an excellent point. In fact, as I
understand it, you should not use the PL/SQL
interfaces into the various licensed items in 10g.
Still, in 10g there were a number of new features that
were not special or licensed that one could use. 

I think there are a number of people who do own these
packs, so some coverage is warranted... but we don't
want that coverage to overshadow the standard features
either. It's always a careful balancing act when
determining what to cover and what not to cover and
then, what depth one will cover things too.
