 > (1) C:\OSGeo4W\apps\Python27\DLLs\sqlite3.dll => python (osgeo4w-python
 is based on http://www.python.org/ftp/python/2.7.2/python-2.7.2.msi) ships
 sqlite as its own database-engine

 but since we are putting that python within OSGeo4w it's probably better
 to remove the sqlite3.dll shipped with python2.7 and set the osgeo4w-
 sqlite3 package required from the osgeo4w-python one.

 We are trying to avoid the windows-dll-hell, so I'm wondering if there is
 a good reason to keep that sqlite3.dll within the Python27\DLLs folder and
 not just use the other one.
