Bug#309371: ITP: python-pysqlite2 -- python interface to SQLite

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

I intend to package PySQLite 2. It will happily coexist with the
current python-sqlite package, which has another API.




    pysqlite a DB-API 2.0-compliant database interface for SQLite.

    SQLite is a relational database management system contained in a
    relatively small C library. It is a public domain project created
    by D. Richard Hipp. Unlike the usual client-server paradigm, the
    SQLite engine is not a standalone process with which the program
    communicates, but is linked in and thus becomes an integral part
    of the program. The library implements most of SQL-92 standard,
    including transactions, triggers and most of complex queries.

    pysqlite makes this powerful embedded SQL engine available to
    Python programmers. It stays compatible with the Python database
    API specification 2.0 as much as possible, but also exposes most
    of SQLite's native API, so that it is for example possible to
    create user-defined SQL functions and aggregates in Python.

    If you need a relational database for your applications, or even
    small tools or helper scripts, pysqlite is often a good fit. It's
    easy to use, easy to deploy, and does not depend on any other
    Python libraries or platform libraries, except SQLite. SQLite
    itself is ported to most platforms you'd ever care about.

    It's often a good alternative to MySQL, the Microsoft JET engine
    or the MSDE, without having any of their license and deployment
