utf8 vs string escaping is a tricky bug report "feature" ... It's on my 
todo list but Oracle needs to be running stable first.

An implementation of SQLite would be part of rewriting Postgresql 
procedures and getting SQLite procedures as side effect - kind of. It 
depends how much feedback would be here or if there anyone wanting to 
maintain that feature ... I am aware of the fact that you will get a 
massive load problem on such a db but thanks for testing :)

we discussed about small test installs and having a small portable db or 
some thing like that. I am not really into SQLite so priority will be 
low (3 RDBMs are enough, too....)

Thanks for pointing to that!

Kind regards,
