I'm aiming at a usable DB-API implementation in the stdlib that does
not need a server. I want Python to have an RDBMS interface that works
OOTB, no administration required. SQLite seems the obvious choice to
me, haven't looked at Gadfly in a while, and MySQLdb/MySQL embedded
(GPL) has licensing issues (and adds megabytes to the Python binary
download, instead of ca. 270 kB uncompressed as for SQLite).
