My point is to include a usable DB-API 2.0 implementation that people can use as a starting point when developing applications that need a relational database. Other languages do the same btw. Java (win32?) includes a JDBC driver or ODBC, and PHP5 includes a SQLite module.
Note that JDBC and ODBC are database driver interfaces much like the Python DB API, not database drivers. You still need to add a JDBC or ODBC driver in order to talk to the database backend of your choice (just like you have to do with the DB API).
Adding an SQLite interface goes beyond that since it is a database driver for a specific database backend.
If you are just after a "usable database driver", then I have to agree with Skip: any of the other available drivers would fit in just as well. Please clarify this.
