Years before, Hydra ( also dropped its SQLite
backend in favor of PostgreSQL only.

Like you, not being a database person, I liked that SQLite was easy to
deploy and had a clear model: it just touches this one file and that’s it.

Yet, I’m starting to see a pattern.  :-)

SQLite may be good enough at a small scale; the problem is that you
never know how long it’ll be before the project you’re hosting is no
longer small-scale.
