sqlite is used  by not just Evo. But by other applications like Firefox, 
chromium, too.

In openSUSE we found a solution 
http://gitorious.org/opensuse/vacuumizer/blobs/master/vacuumizer to do this via

May be the disros can run this script once a month on gdm logging in, so that 
all applications can be benefitted.
