More specifically, a separate program to convert Oracle-isms into
Postgres-isms (and, perhaps, MySQL-isms, DB2-isms, ...).  Feed it
a script, get a new script back.

Do we have a TODO list entry for this?  I don't see it offhand.
I do see something about an SQL*Net listener, which would probably
need to run this sort of conversion on-the-fly, but ISTM the first
step ought to be a simple script converter.
