One thing to add to our feature list is the ability to do the following :

* load the layer (spatial or not) in QGIS
By the way, we in 3liz would love to spend some time implementing some of
these ideas to ease the use of Spatialite in QGIS. The main goal is the
ability to avoid the opening of the sqlite connection manager to do the
basics : open a layer, create a layer in a file (existing or not), saving a
If someone can fund this work, I can write down a wiki page with some ideas
so that people can read/modify it.
