suggestion to make oracle compatability a reality

Hi guys,

Looks like a great system you've got here. I haven't played much with it yet, as I've been trying to get oracle integration happening.

The main stumbling block I'm coming across is Oracle's object name length limit. MySQL's is 64 characters (I think), while Oracle's is 30. This includes column, table, sequence, index and trigger names.

I appreciate this problably isn't much of a priority for you, but if a future version of ojs refactored its db object naming system to the lower threshold of 30 characters, oracle integration could be a viable option.
