I'm super excited to see this. I've personally used the OraOop connector several times and I'm recommending it to every user that is having difficulties or performance issues with the built-in one. I'm definitely in favour of the proposal!

As you may know the current Oracle connector in Sqoop suffers various performance problems - our connector aimed to solve that.
