Hi Philip,

your SQlite package has the same shortcoming of your Postgres one.

If you state in the README it is experimental and you are going to 
change the interface,
application programmers will not use it (i wouldn't).

If one day i will absolutely need a SQlite package
I will do the same as last time, i will look for something that had a 
solid/crystallized/static/accepted interface
and port-it / fix-the-broken-parts. And that will bring us to another 
duplicate package.

I hope you understand my point and don't take this as a critic to your work.

If you fix/stabilize the interface/design and just write what works and 
what doesn't in the README
it will be easier for people to help your package grow.
