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 ?!
