There were some bugs in the very ancient version of Berkeley DB that Asterisk
used. Instead of spending the time tracking down the bugs in the Berkeley code
we move to the much better documented SQLite 3.
Conversion of the old astdb happens at runtime by running the included
astdb2sqlite3 utility. The ast_db API with SQLite 3 backend should behave
identically to the old Berkeley backend, but in the future we could offer a
much more robust interface.
We do not include the SQLite 3 library in the source tree, but instead rely
upon the distribution-provided libraries. SQLite is so ubiquitous that this
should not place undue burden on administrators.
