[fdo-internals] SQLite Provider issue

So we're basically stuck with an old version of SQLite for the SDF format forever (or until we decide to rev SDF to version 4 or something)?

I agree that it wouldn't make sense to use an older version of SQLite for the SQLite provider.  My hope is that it will eventually read (though not optimally) other SQLite schemas such as SpatiaLite or just X/Y columns, and using an old version would constrain this potential.

It's the file generated by the SDF provider that has the binary compatibility issue; the latest SQLite library will not be able to read the files created by the SDF provider.

The SQLite provider takes advantage of new features provided by the latest SQLite library and it would not be a good idea to base the provider on an older version.
