A question about Oracle Spatial:

As far as I can tell, Oracle Spatial hasn't been enabled in the Oracle 18c database in db<>fiddle. I'm not sure if the db<>fiddle team is aware or not, but there has been a recent development in the Oracle world (within the last couple of years) -- Oracle has made their Spatial product ***free***. 

Previously, it was a paid product (very expensive).

Now that Oracle Spatial is free, has db<>fiddle considered enabling it? As far as I know, Oracle Spatial is included in every version of Oracle. So I wonder if it would just be a matter of turning it on -- and then we could us it in our test fiddle scripts. 

Would that be worth doing?
