Oops. To continue, the thorniest problem we had was the large number of
reserved words in oracle. For instance, "size", "comment", "session", and
some other fields cannot be used in Oracle. (Well they can if you surround
them with double quotes, but that is not realistic to do in a portable
system.) So we are having to add a __MVC_FIELDMUNGE__ and __FIELDMUNGE__
variable set to add fragments to the field names in catalog templates
generated for Oracle.
