New submission from Sergey Fedoseev <fedoseev.sergey at gmail.com>:

SQLite converters are documented to be sensitive to the case of type names, but they're not.

In [50]: import sqlite3
    ...: 
    ...: sqlite3.converters.clear()
    ...: sqlite3.register_converter('T', lambda x: 'UPPER')
    ...: sqlite3.register_converter('t', lambda x: 'lower')
    ...: 
    ...: con = sqlite3.connect(':memory:', detect_types=sqlite3.PARSE_DECLTYPES)
    ...: cur = con.cursor()
    ...: cur.execute('create table test(upper T, lower t)')
    ...: cur.execute('insert into test values (?, ?)', ('X', 'x'))
    ...: cur.execute('select * from test')
    ...: cur.fetchone()
    ...: 
Out[50]: ('lower', 'lower')

In [51]: sqlite3.converters
Out[51]: {'T': <function __main__.<lambda>>}
