[IronPython] sqlalchemy + sqlite on ironpython

Hi Harry,
Two other options that I know of:

1) IronPython.Sqlite (http://bitbucket.org/jdhardy/ironpython.sqlite):
This is a pure managed implementation with no external dependencies
but it's not complete.

2) A wrapper around System.Data.Sqlite:
http://bitbucket.org/jdhardy/adonet-dbapi. A slightly older version of
this is in the FePy trunk. This is only a partial implementation as

I think #1 is the better long-term option because System.Data.Sqlite
(#2) isn't capable of supporting all of Python's sqlite3 module and is
thus a bit of a dead end. I don't know which of the two is actually
more capable currently, though.
