hmm, the oracle provider in the GNOME 1,4 version was able to connect
using the $ORACLE_SID variable, as well as using a TNSNAMES entry. So,
have a look to see how it does.

About using combination of host, port, etc, I don't know :-( Do the
Oracle docs say something about it? (in the header files, there was some
documentation about each function, last time I looked).
