I'm curious why?
It seems to suggest that using SQL is somehow a big deal?

But with the SqlLite database access that ships with Python 2.5+
the database is just a normal file and you access it using
SQL commands. There is no database server or DBA involvement
etc. if that is your concern.

SqlLite is specifically designed for these kinds of small scale
ad-hoc query of complex data type of scenarios.

Or is there something else that rules it out?
