Just a followup warning, to make it clear....

DON'T DO THIS on your real db.  Make a test.db copy, like the example
says.  About the only thing this database is useful for is testing,
and then being thrown away... I don't even make any guarantees that
such a db will still be readable for the real 0.17 release, never mind
headaches about managing rebuilds across your project...

comets; feeble contrivance; could make a better one myself.
