 Just out of curiosity: how can a DBD not be backwards compatible?  I
 understand that the underlying engine might not be backwards

 SQLite 2 executed that SQLite 3 doesn't?

 What do you mean "manually linked"?

 It comes out fine here.

 Fine, but that doesn't really address the problem of existing programs
 breaking, does it?  What happens when both libdbd-sqlite2-perl and
 libdbd-sqlite-perl are installed and one of these programs gets run?
