The one huge advantage of SQLite is its simplicity.

To run my new CMS prototype on tunes.org, I just copied the directory
from my home machine to my account there, downloaded Sqlite 3.3.13 and
Python 2.5, and installed them in ~/bin.  No other dependencies.  IT

Do you know of any other DBMS like that?  I don't think MYSQL or
POSTGRESQL is right for us.
