[CDBI] Oracle Adaptor

I have written code for the Oracle Class::DBI adaptor.  Specifically, you 
can not find data in a CLOB column using the '=' operator.  I added some 
code to track CLOB columns and write the query in a different way (using 
LIKE) when the where clause contains a CLOB column.    Does anyone maintain 
this package at the moment?  If so, would you kindly review my changes for 
possible incorporation into the production driver?

Also, I have written a general method called 'get_single_row' which 
basically passes off the arguments to 'search' but dies if more than one 
record is returned.   I was wondering if this method or something of that 
ilk would be worth including in the Class::DBI methods.

Thanks for a great product, we rely heavily on this code and it does a 
great job.
