[development] SQLite and Drupal 7 -- third coming

Has anyone looked into version compatibility between the different  
versions of sqlite? For example, on the same ISP, one server I checked  
has sqlite2, the other has sqlite3. Neither server has both drivers  
installed. Neither server actually has the sqlite binaries installed,  
though I assume that isn't common, but worth checking on other SQLite  
supporting hosts.

The SQLite site mentions using the command line tools to dump and  
restore the DB, and I haven't found anything about doing that from  
pure PHP. This probably wouldn't be an issue for caches and such,  
since an incompatible DB can just be recreated. I could see it causing  
headaches for "Drupal Lite" scenarios.
