 >>> import sqlite3
 >>> sqlite3.version
'2.4.1'

Is it possible to install a real sqlite version 3 somehow? I really need 
it because I have to use savepoint/rollback to. That is only supported 
from sqlite 3.6.8. Is it enough if I upgrade to Ubuntu Karmic? I know 
that is not a question about Python itself.

But still, it is interesting that a module named "sqlite3" can actually 
be used for something called "sqlite 2".

Thanks
