Sorry, but this doesn't seem to be activated in dev build. I'm getting
lockups after some seconds. I've tried it on two different systems.

Creating sqlite tiles is veeeery slow. For the German "Ruhrgebiet",
seeding all tiles in filesystem takes about 25 minutes (zoom 0-22).
With sqlite it takes about 4 hours. All cores are at 10-20 % maxium,
while they're at 100% when rendering into files directly.

I don't think it's FOSS, is it? ;)
I'm too busy to write my own tool right now :(
