Would you use SQLite?
I am really surprised at how far you have followed this
Matts, your original post to the dbi-dev included:
"Anyway, this is my first hack at a DBD driver, so it's likely buggy,
leaky, etc. But seems to work for the simple selects I've run on it so

I had assumed (falsely) that it was more of a programming
exercise. Now it seems (here I go assuming again) that you
are very interested in how this module is regarded by the
My opinions on this?

of choices is almost overwhelming for new comers.
- I like using MySQL as a database and it is convient for
*me* to do that.
- I am interested in DBD::SQLite, but I haven't
