Hmm, good point. =)

I still believe that the change should be reverted.

I get the following warnings on Solaris:

In order to remove these, we'd need to 'fork' SQLite. I'd really
rather not do that.

On *most* current OSes, they already have a suitable SQLite version
installed. On the *nix-side, I think we're really only hearing about
complaints regarding ancient RHEL releases (RHEL4 is entering
'critical security fixes only' mode in March). If we simply add the
auto-fu for building from ./sqlite, I think we'd solve those concerns
even for folks on ancient OSes.

Our policy has been to include dependencies separately and *not*
include them directly in the tree. Why should SQLite be different?
I'd rather that we just add a ./sqlite dir to the -deps tarball when
1.6 rolls around and we'd be fine.

I also strongly dislike the idea that we're going to be using a custom
version of SQLite that doesn't match what the OS provider gives - this
will bust any easy ability for users to investigate/debug the SQLite
databases when needed via the 'sqlite' et al tools. (Yes, they do so
at their own risk; but I think it'll be crucial as we encounter issues
in the new WC code in the long-run.) Since it will be on us to
constantly upgrade what is in our tree (and backport constantly), it's
going to be a PITA to keep things in sync with what is available of

As I said, I was already partially through adding the bundle support.
Now that glasser blew away the files w/o giving any heads-up, I've got
tree conflicts. =( -- justin
