 Ok, so a couple of things:

1. Props. for trying this :)

2. Just commenting out @catchSqliteException is obviously fine for a
first attempt, but needs a better fix before you give it to random
people IMO.

3. This is a lot smaller than I expected, even for a beta, although
there are some more things in the latest 3.2.x series that would need to
change ... this certainly implies that it might not be as hard as we'd
assumed to get the latest onto RHEL-4.

4. Did you run "make check", or just use it until you hit a failure? --
just wondering how much extra stuff might be lurking.
