Yes - but you should probably be running the Generic Oracle backend,

Which has the following table:
Native	Yes - but PostgreSQL does not replicate
Master	Yes
Slave	Yes
Superslave	Yes
Autoserial	NO
Case	All lower
Module name < 2.9.3	pgmysql
Module name > 2.9.2	gmysql and gpgsql
Lauch name	gmysql and gpgsql2 and gpgsql

This should include goracle btw, will fix the documentation.
