That implementation doesn't support the DBAPI, although it sounds as though 
the differences are mostly shallow and easy to add implementations 
for.  (e.g., implementing the fetch* methods, a description property, etc.).

More likely to be an issue is that the author hasn't volunteered to 
contribute/support it.

On the plus side, it sounds like ASPW is a more general wrapping of SQLite, 
which seems to me to lean in its favor for the stdlib, if it can also be 
brought into DBAPI compliance.
