You could get a list of Oracle databases by parsing a TSNAMES.ORA file.

exactly. Usually, those would be real databases, as it is for postgres
and mysql, for instance. I was thinking that the oracle provider could
simulate databases by using Oracle's schemas.

hmm, right. Or we could just leave them unimplemented in oracle,
although well, that would be a strange thing to have to call a (future)
drop_user for a schema returned in the DATABASES schema. Not sure what
to do, any other idea?
