Yes, I know how frustrating that is. I think most companies are too lazy

the easy way out -- use DBA! But it can't be that easy anymore these days,
not with SOX and such!

Yup, this has been an issue with Toad for years.

In the 90's I had to write a custom version of DBA_(some dba view here)
for use by developers in production.  They were required to
see certain stored objects in production, we were required to
prevent allowing them destructive access to the database.
