What does this mean?  Do you want me to write a stub for the SQLite
API that runs as a subprocess and exposes that over some sort of RPC

Oh, you want me to use the existing sqlite3 command line client?
That's a non-starter.  It is not binary-transparent, and it does not
separated support query parameters.  My planned use case (Gnus)
handles untrusted data received over the network, so this approach
does not seem such a good idea to me.
