Thank you, I had forgotten that exclusive-or is equivalent to
not-equals for boolean values. Still, it would be a little nicer if I
could write a == b XOR c == d instead of (a == b) != (c == d). It
would be even more readable for non-boolean values: a XOR b instead of
(NOT NOT a) != (NOT NOT b).

Anyway, thanks for the help. I'd love to see boolean XOR in SQLite,
but if not, at least I have a solution now.
