what disagreement ?

sqlite is a widely used light-weight SQL library (http://www.sqlite.org)
that's an excellent choice for many kind of applications.  it has no com-
petition in this space.

gerald's pysqlite binding is a second-generation implementation of the
full DB-API (http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0249/) for sqlite.

from a user perspective, adding this to the standard library is a no-brainer.
the only reason not to add it would be if the release managers don't have
time to sort out the build issues.
