When I first saw this message, I assumed you were referring to the relationships
code that someone you know sent me...

<URL: http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/Bug.html?id=12730>

...but you mention "sequence discovery code". Did you really mean
"relationships", or did your coworker write some sequence discovery
code too? If so, I don't think anyone has sent it to me. Anyway,
Class::DBI::Loader::Oracle does have sequence discovery code, since it
inherits from Class::DBI::Oracle, which provides that functionality.

In any case, I apologize that I haven't done anything with the
relationships code yet. I'm not using CDBI:L:Oracle right now and am
extremely busy with other projects. Therefore, evaluating and writing
tests for that code isn't a high priority for me right now. If someone
submits some good tests as part of a proper patch, I'll happily apply it. 
If lots of people really want this functionality, let me know and I may
be convinced to re-prioritize it and do it sooner myself. :)


P.S. Sorry for the cross-posting, but I thought people on other lists
may be interested in this.
