I think I saw in the docs that SQLite uses a 1k page size.  OTOH,
looking at other database software I see page sizes typically 8k-32k.

Don't Windows computer want to always read disk in 4k chunks?  

Why does SQLite have such small page size?  

Does this help or hurt performance?

I'm using SQLite with good results and no complaints. Just curious.
