No blame coming from here- I try not to do blame culture, and especially in
this case given that the Centos folks do an amazing job for free - and can't
be expected to test against 3rd party repositories like Dags.

I'm pretty sure it's not from RedHat, though under normal circumstances
you'd be right. If I read the centos 4.2 release notes correctly, their
sqlite package has come in to improve yum performance as part of the centos
replacement for the Redhat Network.

It would be cool if centos could change their package name to sqlite3 and
make that come through to replace their sqlite package asap, but I don't
know if that type of update is even possible, let alone warranted given the
tiny minority (1?) who are probably affected by it versus the risks of
screwing up a bunch of other people's happy centos4.2 systems.
