Hi list,

Whilst trying to mimic ogr2ogr functionality in Python, I stumbled upon 
an issue with writing to SQLite: it works, but it's painfully slow 
(minutes instead of seconds).

The link below points to an example that can be used for reproducing the 

Outputting to ESRI Shapefile, or another CSV is very fast. It's only 
SQLite that seems to be slow.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Regards, Roald
