there is, but i have no clue how to do it. our main oracle DBA has been
on vacation for a couple weeks, and i was going to run stuff by him.
i'll ask him about this too, although i'd wonder if the overhead of the
trigger would negate any other benefits..

i'll get this by him tomorrow though, thanks :)
