Yes, hence step 3.

That's what I had intended, it simply slipped my mind to mention it in
step 1.

As you had mentioned yourself in f-e-c, "the sudden appearance of sqlite
v3 in Rawhide has created chaos", and I'm just trying to help clean it
up.

If it isn't dealt with soon then it will be too late, and anyone that
has kannel or moodss installed will be unable to cleanly upgrade to FC4
without manual intervention.

Now, shall I proceed with the creation and import of a sqlite2 package
that obsoletes sqlite < 3?
