I use SQLite and PgSQL (and, alas, MySQL) on a daily basis. So I've *of
course* read the doc (and frequently re-read it).

Yes. And yes, I know about the typing issue. If you want to make sure
you can migrate your data to a real RDBMS, then it's up to you to take
appropriate precautions (FormEncode can be a real helper here...).

This (documented enough) issue apart, we have far less troubles with
SQLite than we have with MySQL, on both the dev and admin sides.

And FWIW, insulting peoples won't buy you much.
