Turns out I can't really make a patch that removes files without write access 
to CVS. There's some funky things you can do with diff -N and patch -E but 
seems like a pain.  Attached is a patch that at least updates the general 
contrib README and Makefile, someone else will have to actually delete the 
files in the oracle/ directory.  (If yall want to give me write access, I 
could spend some time cleaning up some more of these) Oh, and no special 
write up for the README, looking at some of the other contribs that did get 
removed, apparently we don't do that, but the commit should probably at least 
mention the project page, http://freshmeat.net/projects/ora2pg/
