It's probably not as easy as that unfortunately - a lot of the SQL calls built in to WordPress use
MySQL specific syntax. Take SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS for example - the Oracle equivalent would just be
found_rows. A lot of people have asked for database abstraction over the years (especially so they
could use Postgres), and some work was started on it, but it didn't receive much support from the
core devs and I'm not sure if it came to anything...
