1) If you check here:
the same command is available. But, I admit having to search and find
the same Metalink document. I agree with you.

2) This is no-where near as bad, in my opinion, as Standard Edition
without the EM packs (EE, extra price option?). Yet, its great for our
consulting businesses, Oracle telling customers they can run Standard
Edition, without the EM packs, and without a DBA. ;-)

3) Almost forgot, some of the patches for 10g are similarly
entertaining. :-)
