talked this one over with one of our Oracle guys here at work a month or
so back ... seems that *everything* for Oracle is a NUMBER ... whether its
an INT or a DECIMAL or what ... 

Its there 'jack of all trades' sort of type that everything equates to
... it. int == number with a precision of 0 ... or somethign like that ...
