I am using OFA as much as possible, but not more. OFA is not a commandment, 
it's a recommendation.
As long as you know what you're doing, you're allowed to interpret it rather 
freely. I flatter myself
that I know what I'm doing, most of the time. As for the big script, I don't 
see a need for a big script 
where I can resolve the given problem with a perl one-liner. PL/SQL is nice, 
and I am quite fluent with it, 
but I am inclined  to use any tool that is available and is the best fit for 
the job at hand. In this
case, perl is better. Interesting thing is that I have a colleague who used to 
teach perl at MIT no less,
and who keeps nagging me about my excessive use of PL/SQL. I guess that you 
can't please them all.
