That was my thinking too, for a long time.  I figured that any exploit
in SQLite's language was far less severe than the SQL injection
vulnerability that you create by giving users access to the language.

But some apps allow this.  Example:  The WebSQL implementation in
webkit, used in Chrome and Safari.  Earlier this year, a group of
hackers figured out how to root a Mac using a chain of 6 exploits, one
of which was a language exploit in SQLite that was accessed using
WebSQL.  Since then, I have taken a more cautious approach and assumed
that the bad guys do have unrestricted SQL access.
