All the accesses to hash tables which are tied to DB_File (e.g. 
%inv_index_db, %docs_db, etc) will have to be replaced by SQL statements 
that access Oracle.

In the hashes are only tied if $LOW_MEMORY_INDEX is set, so if 
that option is not set, only needs to be changed in save_db() 
(except for %content_db, which is always tied). Indexing might become much 
slower by these changes.
