This is what I first thought because I had to chose among PDO_OCI or 
oci8 and I first went with PDO but was quickly stucked with install 
tool. You have already experience with other DBMS. For me I only have 
experience with your rvt_adodb to connect to a MS SQL for "my stuff" but 
not for TYPO3.

Yes, please send me your work, I'll try it. I suggest we discussed this 
during T3D09 if you'll be there.
