On second thought... if it were me, I think I'd write a special export 
function, rather than import function.  The export function would cross 
database boundaries as needed.  It would rewrite every OID and OID 
reference as "db_name:oid".  Then you wouldn't need to write an import 

I hope the import/export code doesn't have some buried assumption that 
OIDs are 8 bytes long, though.
