You'd probably be surprised just how many people there are out there using 
SQLlite (and other databases) who have no more than a 5 minute introduction to 
relational databasess.  "See, you have tables, and you can stick columns for 
various attributes, and then add records for rows, and if you make multiple 
tables you specify which attribute becomes a 'key value' to find the 
corresponding record in another.  Have fun!"
