Oracle to buy Sleepycat?

According to BusinessWeek, Oracle may be close to buying Sleepycat Software, maker of the excellent BerkeleyDB database.

That would be sad. I'd hate to see one of my favorite little companies disappear into the distended folds of the Oracle behemoth.

Update: Sigh. The rumor is true. Oracle bought Sleepycat Software.
