Getting very off-topic here, but I'm surprised you considered SQLite
in this situation, as an "equivalent" to Sybase. I'd certainly never
seen it as catering for that sort of application. I see it more
related to something like MS Access (which I hope no-one would
consider for serious sized corporate applications - even though I know
some people do :-()

Of course, if that perception is common, then I think that the library
documentation should be very clear about where SQLite is appropriate,
and where it is not...
