Hate to follow up to myself, but I was horribly unclear. What there is no
evidence to support is that oracle somehow handles large data sets considerably
better than free solutions. I think I misused the term robust. Oracle is more
featureful, but it isn't faster in most cases(even when large data sets are 
involved), and more often then not it is slower.
