My analysis indiciates that there is nothing noxious in the Oracle Instant
Client license which would encumber us from distributing a binding to it,
provided that we do not ship it ourselves.  GPL packagers might have their
own concerns with the license.


The SQLite libraries are Public Domain.  In fact it appears we could ship
those drivers (as shipped by sqlite.org, I don't really desire to rebuild
this code unless we believe its necessary).  The question is, should we?

The PostgreSQL libraries are BSD licensed.  And again it appears we could
ship those drivers (again from their binary distribution) for the win32
binary distribution, if we saw a need.  But I'd restrict this to the client
driver only, not the entire PostgreSQL distribution.  Again, the question
would be, should we?

In any case, there is nothing stopping us from shipping these three driver
connectors that I can find.  Thoughts or comments?
