The silly requirement of some distributions that *everything* must be a
shared library irks me beyond words.  I hate having to support
--disable-internal-sqlite, and I hate having to add silly work-arounds in
the code to accommodate distributions trying to use an older SQLite with a
newer Fossil.  This impedes progress and introduces bugs.  It's a lose-lose
situation.  And yet the distributions are dogmatic on this point.

It's maddening.  It makes my hair turn gray.  It irks me more than seeing
the noun "data" used as a plural.  Utter madness!

But we live in a fallen world.  We have to do it.  Please go ahead and
