Starting from Oracle 10g or something it supports also EPSG codes. Old codes are
still supported by Oracle but other programs usually do not understand Oracle
SRID codes. Fortunately they are no more needed. But I think that the correct
way to give target SRID with ogr Oracle driver is not to use -a_srs but the
Layer Creation Option -lco SRID=4326.
