SQLite 2 (Oct. 2001), this is no longer true.

For embedded SQL databases, there are three options AFAIK (PySQLite,

Here are the resources I recommend prior to going to Freshmeat:

http://python.org/topics/database/

http://dmoz.org/Computers/Programming/Languages/Python/Modules/Databases_and_Persistence/

I try personally to keep the dmoz one up-to-date.
