> 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.

Also we have existing sqlite3-based modules that, unless updated, would be linking against the system sqlite3 and that just feels wrong. It is certainly adds more work to move them all over to using an internal version.
