Sorry, if I offended you. I was just a bit annoyed because Ubuntu and
Debian shipped incompatible version of sqlite with libgda3 for so long
without even fixing it after several bug reports.

IMHO, it is also a fail to not ship the sqlite provider by default if it
breaks things (which should be stated in the docs but some test would
have revealed this quickly anyway).

Mea culpa.

I checked and nowhere the doc mentions that the SQLite provider is used internally. I'm preparing a patch for the V4 and will release a 4.0.1 soon to make sure everything is OK even if the SQLite provider is not installed.
