[Qgis-developer] save as spatialite very resource consuming

I have to confirm that the file size is huge and saving performance is slow.
I'd like to emphasize that this is a show stopper for me for/against
Spatialite to become "the Shapefile of the future"!
I did not yet look into the QGIS driver code, but I assume (and hope)
that at least the saving performance can be enhanced.
