sqlite3 is local file system database. In the great motion to include
the database one shall consider that database system shall become
available to Emacs Lisp programmers. And in that sense, the motion
shall expand into using the network databases such as
PostgreSQL. Module for it already exists. I am sure that developers
are fine to include it in Emacs or ELPA. I have asked them and we
discussed it. 


emacs-libpq @ Github

Please keep the motion to include sqlite3, PostgreSQL, GDBM and other
DBM-like databases, so that Emacs can be built or support such. 

I am working with PostgreSQL all the time. For example I store my
cursors places in the database, for any single editable database

It will boost Emacs' capabilities.
