I think it is indeed not a good idea to use the heimdal version, but the
"official" sqlite version instead.  And sqlite3 has definitely many good
uses besides heimdal, so yes, please put it in a place where other
pieces of software can use it as well, not only heimdal.

That said, I am all in favour of you importing sqlite (aka ok mbalmer ;)
