Note that JDBC and ODBC are database driver interfaces much like
the Python DB API, not database drivers. You still need to add
a JDBC or ODBC driver in order to talk to the database backend
of your choice (just like you have to do with the DB API).

Adding an SQLite interface goes beyond that since it is a
database driver for a specific database backend.

If you are just after a "usable database driver", then I have to
agree with Skip: any of the other available drivers would fit in
just as well. Please clarify this.
