I just want to make it clear that I don't consider multiple
implementations based on SQLite to be "independent". However I realize
that that is my interpretation of the independence requirement, others
might not share it.

I'm also not sure if Operas implementation *is* in fact based on
SQLite. If it's not then I agree they are truly independent.
