To not look *that* stupid the mistake I made was:
I thought the parameter name was not optional
The default for in|out|"in out" is "in" thus I read the function as foo
("out" IN int)
(of course if it was an IN var it does'nt produce an out column and
thus need no label, mistake 2)
In Oracle the syntax is:
varname [IN|OUT|IN OUT] type
