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 far. I've done no optimization, no performance tests, or anything. I literally hacked this together today for fun. And I'm not particularly looking to maintain it unless there's really strong interest in it, and even then I'd rather someone offered to take it over."

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 community.

My opinions on this?

  • The DBIx and DBD namespace is polluted right now. The number 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 taken the time to play with it. So maybe I am not interested enough.
  • I would be more interested if a clear benefit in using it over the other currently available solutions was presented.
  • I don't consider speed enough of a benefit.
  • Issues like number of users, remote access, support, etc. would contribute to my use of the module.
  • Since you indicate(d) you are not interested in maintaining I am not likely to invest time into until someone does take over maintaining it.

In short I am looking for a compelling reason to *use* DBD::SQLite.
