I was playing around w/qs-rf branch and successfully merged it w/GeoDjango (there are a few minor tweaks I had make to Query, but otherwise it went well -- I will try and give these diffs to Malcolm later). Because GeoDjango supports Oracle, I decided to try it out, but noticed that the OracleQuerySet had not been modified to be compatible w/queryset-refactor changes.
Attached is the patch I used to enable Oracle functionality under the queryset-refactor branch. Essentially, I added an OracleQuery subclass that has resolve_columns from the original OracleQuerySet and and overrides the as_sql method to deal with the peculiarities of limit/offset SQL in Oracle. The new OracleQuerySet subclass just overrides __init__ to use OracleQuery. There is probably a more elegant way of using qs-rf facilities (e.g., using get_from_clause the way count() does), but it appears to work well enough to pass all GeoDjango tests (not confirmed w/Django tests).
Another change (that has been in GeoDjango for a while) is the modification of the _format_params routine in FormatStylePlaceholderCursor. Because GeoDjango performs spatial queries w/CLOBs (to store WKT geometries), the setinputsizes routine needs to be called. With the patch, _format_params looks to see if the parameter has an oracle_type method, and if it does it will call setinputsizes with the result of oracle_type. For an example of how this is used see the Oracle [browser:django/branches/gis/django/contrib/gis/db/backend/oracle/adaptor.py geometry adaptor class] of GeoDjango.
