First, PySQLite is not pure Python, it needs to be compiled against the 
SQLite engine.

Second, PySQLite currently requires Python >= 2.1 and will require 
Python >= 2.2 in the 0.5 branch which I'll start eventually.

I'd be willing to make a backport to 1.5.2 if somebody pays me. But 
something as little fun as this I won't do for free :-P
