I have a task to add and remove a number of fields across a number of feature classes and tables. I would like the fields to be in a new order when done. They have relationships classes, domains, and possibly joins on them. Also they are versioned. In the past I have made new copy feature classes with python or XTools to do this and replaced (deleted) the original. I also noticed that there are some xml schema export/import workflow options for this. But I don't see anything that will let me do it in place.

Is there a way to change the filed order with python (or otherwise) for existing feature classes and tables in an oracle gdb?

Yes or No... depending on which suits and is or will be implemented

ArcGIS should allow the ability to permanently reorder fields in a table
