Can we let the FC-3 branch rest in peace until everything is sorted out
in "devel"? That's all I would like to recommend.

Yes, but in "devel" please. ;)

Maybe taking this topic to maintainers-list or filing bug reports would
help? I mean, either the existing sqlite deps can be updated to work with
sqlite v3 or they cannot. In case of the latter, an sqlite2 package is
what has been suggested some time ago (also in the %prep section of the
sqlite package in "devel" when sqlite appeared in Rawhide).

In "devel" that would be the road of least surprise, also with regard
to Jean-Luc's need to sqlite tcl, which had appeared in Rawhide and then
was removed again, btw.
