Being the primary PySQLite maintainer, that's good to hear :)

-0 from me for adding either Gadfly or PySQLite to the standard Python 
distribution. I can't see any merit in this.

I also see the danger of PySQLite/Gadfly being used for purposes they're 
not appropriate if they're included in the standard distribution.
