I don't really care about the name, but please be aware that
you are talking about adding a *very* popular module name to
the top-level Python namespace if you go for "db" or "database".

Why can't we just have the pysqlite package as top-level
package, with a slight change in name to prevent clashes
with the external distribution, e.g. sqlite ?!

Such a module name is less likely to cause problems.
