Not a whole lot has changed in our SQL usage since DannyB's initial
implementation -- porting to a new SQL-compatible backend should be a
matter of changing no more than 1 SQL statement.

While I don't really think it's necessary, in terms of moving to
apr_bdb or an alternate abstraction in a later release, there should
be no problem, as we aren't currently exposing sqlite as part of our
public API.
