Not that I'm aware of. You simply call them pretty much like
any other Python callable thing. The signature is:

  someMethod([mapping, **other_arguments])


     mapping is a mapping object that provides SQL method arguments, and
     can include other information. (The actual name of the positional
     argument may be "REQUEST" ;).  This argument is optional.

     You can also provide arguments as named keywords.

No, but I'd love to see someone tackle it. The semantics
of stored procedures varies so widely accross databases, that
I doubt that it would be easiliy generalizable. I think, at
least for starters, a form of stored procedure support for
Oracle would make alot of sense.

I think you'd have to roll your own. If you want to 
do something reusable that other people could use, I'd be
happy to provide whatever advice and support I can.

Note that one of the things I like about Oracle's stored procedures
is that they allow me to avoid screwing with cursors in the common case
that I'm getting one row of data.  I can just get the data I need through 
a straight function call.  The DCOracleStorage uses stored procedures
almost exclusively.
