No we don't want users to look in our database, but why can't I access my
own sqlite database? (TortoiseSVN uses sqlite for its log cache if I
remember correctly)

And why don't we want users to share the same sqlite installation on
Windows, while we can't even specify a standard version of sqlite on other

Using sqlite shared works right now... Why disable it?

Why break specific Windows scenarios on purpose?

Just for the fun of doing this because windows is .... (fill in your
favorite problem) ?
