GDAL/OGR already has support for Sqlite (though I think it uses Wkb
rather than Wkt) so you may want to look at writing a front end to that
- the current add layer functionality does not work for cases like
sqlite where you need to select a sublayer after selecting a file. That
said Godofredo Contreras was working on generic access to OGR database
based datasets at one point and it may be good to hook up with him first
and look at collaborating....
