Have a look at PHPlib, which wraps db connections up into a set of classes, that
share the same API. I think both MySQL and Oracle are covered, as well as the
other major DBs supported by PHP, so it's just a case of creating a DB_SQL
object and working with that. Alternatively, you cold create your own set of
reusable functions to do the same thing, such as db_connect(), db_query(), etc.
And because PHP is open source, creating "proper" PHP functions, and compiling
them in, would not be all that difficult...
