[fdo-internals] FDO RFC 16 - FDO Provider for SQLite

I could go either way on PRJ. Seemed kind of useful since often times one wants to set a coordinate system on the data file without messing with the data itself.

I'm not sure how I feel about .prj file support.  Does the use of this imply that all tables in the database share the same coordinate system?  I guess that if this was combined with the use of X/Y columns, it would increase the portability of using SQLite for spatial in some cases.

I understand that QGIS uses SQLite somehow internally.  Does anyone know the details?  It would be nice to align with them if possible.

I just posted FDO RFC #16. Fresh off the virtual presses (printed on 100% recycled electrons, for you green-minded folks):
