Actually, it really is. It shows us that we are still very far away from Ellison's dream of a "DBA in a box". If computers do not know how to make love, how are they going to do more complicated things, like tuning an oracle instance, for example? This tells us that our jobs are safe, unless they get ousourced overseas.
