  The migration to sqllite would be fairly simple, agreed.

  However that is a significant change.

  Part of that is because HTML is *everywhere* in the code and there
 are a lot of routines which could be written better.  Even the core
 of the program writing the core HTTP loop, etc, really shouldn't be

  Plus I know all the prototypes are bogus...

  I could switch to the SQLite immediately, but I'd want to redo
 things properly from the core outwards, via some HTTP module and
 that really suggests a rewrite more than a reworking.
