I would have liked to implement the last major missing piece from 
pysqlite - the authorizer hook - release pysqlite 2.3.0 and merge the 
changes into the Python core sqlite3 module.

This would be an additional feature and not require any changes to the 
existing code.

If you'd rather not have this merged because of new code, then I'll skip it.

There are other changes I did in pysqlite for pysqlite 2.3.0 that I'd 
more strongly like to integrate here:


This changeset fixes a real bug that can lead to hard crashes and also 
makes the sqlite module more sane:

- converter names are looked up in a case-insensitive manner (the old 
behaviour is confusing to users)
- Errors in callbacks are not silently ignored any longer, but lead to 
the query being aborted
- Additionaly, the error can be echoed to stderr if a debugging flag is 
set (default is off)
