It's easy enough to add--it is a single .c file and a couple of .h files clocking in a around 4MB total. SQLite is available on pretty much every distribution known to man, though. I would rather rely on the external dependency, personally. I don't like the idea of having to manually update our local copy of SQLite3 from time to time. I would feel differently if it was an obscure package, but SQLite3 is pretty much everywhere.


p.s. next up, appleriasin. :-)
