Well, the just-released Ubuntu 06.06 LTS (Long Term Support) ships 
with sqlite 3.2.8. I'd suggest that whatever version ships with 
Python should _at_ _least_ work with this version. 06.06 is supposed 
to be supported for a couple of years, at least. Since this is the 
latest and greatest version of what's probably the most rapidly 
updating Linux (I don't include gentoo, obviously, because gentoo 
scares me (ObBarryBaiting: funroll-loops.org)), I don't think we can 
expect many people's platforms to have the absolute latest 3.4.4 or 

Alternately, we ship the sqlite3 code with Python. I'm deeply 
unthrilled with this idea, as it means more emergency security 
releases to fix sqlite3 security bugs, as well as bloating out the 
size of the release. 

In the meantime, I'd suggest the appropriate fix is to roll back to 
the previous version of the python-sqlite bindings on the trunk.
