I think that it should not become default as mysql module, but if it
is working, it should become default as "portable" sql module.

# emerge sqlite pysqlite

I havent used sqlite, but it seems to be small and usable. I think
that it should start with it.

I think that portage should *support* sql by default, but of course it
should not be default before it's clear that many people like it and
use it. What is imho more important is how to make one usable
interface, which would cover both fs and sql portage db's so that
development didnt go into two products.
