+1 importing sqlite3

I've always liked sqlite and I've been doing a lot of development with it
lately at work and it is just a very nice product (and well tested, too!). 
While it is designed as an embedded database, I think it is strong enough to
take care of the vast majority of database needs (i.e., not many need the 
added benefits of a Postgres or the like).
