Ah, as long as Fedora Extras are not upgraded during firstboot, extra
packages can get out-of-sync [*]. Yes. However, the first "yum update"
should fix that and cause yum to see the SONAME requirement for
libsqlite2.so.0 and add sqlite2-2.8.x (from FE4) into the transaction set.
 
[*] The entire range of side-effects this can result in, is not known
yet. There are services in Fedora Extras, too, which can be started at
reboot and can fail until they are upgraded.
