So would you take the position:

  sqlite3 without JSON1 is broken, period

  anything in pkgsrc that wants sqlite3 should get a version with JSON1

  therefore should reject NetBSD bas sqlite3, at least until
  some future time when base has it?

  and we can skip declaring that JSON1 is needed?

I think that's a perfectly reasonable approach.

If you and js@ concur and overall consensus says so, I'll do this.
