Create a database link with the new host:port/service syntax

I just noticed that (finally) in 11.2 this syntax is supported:
SQL> CREATE DATABASE LINK demo_x2 2 CONNECT TO tanel IDENTIFIED BY password 3 USING 'exadb03:1521/DEMO';
Database link created. This just makes life a bit easier as there’s no need to use the long TNS format entry (or a tnsnames.ora/LDAP alias). It might work in 11.1 too (haven’t tested) but it didn’t work on …
Update: This feature works for dblinks in 10.
