I believe there's a Class::DBI::Oracle.

If you use Class::DBI::Sweet, you could just ask it for a like match, of course.

You'd need to send it to RT; the Class::DBI maintainer, as noted in the docs, 
doesn't read the list or involve himself with the user community anymore - he 
left as a result of an unfortunate misunderstanding with another list member 
shortly after we began the DBIx::Class project.
