[New-bugs-announce] [issue27190] Check sqlite3_version before allowing check_same_thread = False

New submission from Dave Sawyer:

Starting in sqlite version 3.3.1 (Jan 2006) multiple threads can share the same connection. Python allows you do use this with the check_same_thread parameter of sqlite3.connect() method. It's almost certain users have a late enough version of sqlite that they can use this option. While we could document "check your version before using this feature" (see http://bugs.python.org/issue27113) it would be nicer to check the actual database for support. Code can be written and tested on one machine and deployed to another machine. Using this feature on an very old version of sqlite can crash or possibly corrupt the database.
