In Dutch oven over medium heat, in 2 T hot butter or margarine, cook onions until tender; stir in flour. Stir in tomatoes and okra and cook, stirring, until mixture thickens slightly. (It is the sticky juices in the okra that thicken the texture of the gumbo.) Open oysters, remove from shells, and drain their liquid into a bowl; add enough water to make 1 cup liquid; meanwhile refrigerate the oysters. Add the liquid, 6 c water, garlic, salt, Worcestershire, and hot-pepper sauce to the pot. Cover; cook over low heat 1 hour. Add shellfish; simmer about 10 minutes. If you like, serve soup over a scoop of rice in each soup bowl.
