I see that apsw bundles SQLite 3.9.2.  Does it work when you replace it with 
the external version 3.9.2 - amalgation or not ?

I don't necessarily mean permanently - just to find out whether the tests work 
normally then.

Also, maybe diff the bundled SQLite 3.9.2 and the released SQLite 3.9.2 
amalgation of the same version ?

The apsw setup.py seems to do some serious config flags magic.  Are those the 

It seems that the bundled package was not done by the original apsw author.  
See details <https://pypi.python.org/pypi/apsw/3.8.5-r1> and 
<https://rogerbinns.github.io/apsw/download.html#easy-install-pip-pypi>.  On 
the first page it says that it will only work with "specific" SQLite versions - 
which is why the original author provided the setup.py which figures out what 
to do instead of bundling a random version like that person did.

All in all it would be much better for apsw to become part of sqlite upstream.  
It even uses sqlite's configure script and parses sqlite's config flags.  Why 
not just make it part of the sqlite release then? *shakes head*
