Having 10g tenable on RELENG_6 would be very nice.

Yep, I have a PR open to update the Handbook instructions for this, and
I've been hanging on to do 10g rather than 9i.
In the meantime (and afterwards too), I suggest that those interested
should not hesitate to register their interest in running 10g on FreeBSD
with Oracle, either via Metalink or the relevant contact at
http://www.oracle.com/corporate/contact/global.html. It came to my
attention this week that a certain large FreeBSD user have an
arrangement with Oracle for FreeBSD support already (although I assume
that this is for the client).
PS If anyone is interested in the hoops required to get the 10gR1
download for Mac OS X working on 10.4, drop me a line.
That must be wonderful! I don't understand it at all.
