So after some thinking here then is my plan of attack:

1) Reimport the sqlite-2.8.16-1 package as sqlite2-2.8.16-1.
2) Provide a patch for kannel for it to use sqlite2.
3) Reimport the python-sqlite package as python-sqlite2 and have it
obsolete anything older than or equal to the current python-sqlite
package.
4) Import the python-sqlite package from Rawhide and have the devel
branch pruned once it's synced for FC3.

Naturally I hope to involve the current sqlite 2.8, kannel, and python-
sqlite maintainers (Panu Matilainen, Matthias Saou, and Thomas Vander
Stichele respectively) in any relevant steps. I am also willing to take
maintainership of the new python-sqlite package if so desired.

I realize that python-sqlite2 and python-sqlite won't be parallel-
installable. I don't have an easy answer for that.
