How so? The problem isn't that python-sqlite 1.1.7 requires sqlite 3.3.x --
it's that sqlite 3.3.x conflicts with python-sqlite 1.1.6.

It doesn't matter if you make python-sqlite 1.1.7 require the new version of
sqlite -- in fact, that'll likely make it worse, since it'll make sqlite get
updated first, which is the wrong way around.
