Hi Ted,

Sounds like good feature. Better to hear Kubo's opinion on this, and 
could you please file a new ticket on the project tracker for feature 
request here:



> Hello,
> I would like to be able to use Oracle's "proxy authentication" feature
> from Ruby.  My Web research and review of the ruby-oci8 source code
> indicate that this feature is unimplemented in ruby-oci8 and there are
> no plans to add it.  I'd love to know if this is definitely the case.
> If proxy authentication is indeed unimplemented, I think adding this
> feature would be a strong enabler for getting ruby-oci8 to be more
> widely used in complex enterprise environments.
> Kubo or Liming, it would be great if you were to please comment on
