SQLite is a gem and PySQLite works great, but I don't see why we should start adding third-party tools of this size (>38k LOC C code) to the standard Python distribution.
Perhaps you we should consider adding only the Python interface and then ship a DLL with the Windows installer like we do for expat and the Sleepycat DBM ?!
Oh, maybe I misread Gerhard's post, but I definitely didn't expect him to do anything other than this! I'd be -1 on adding the SQLite code to Python, but +1 on shipping the wrapper module with the source code, and the DLL on Windows.
