select max(integer_date) as [max_integer_date int_date] from table1

fetch the cursor.description and split the column name at the space.  The right 
part is the datatype for your handy dandy use.

You may also be able to use the same method in the table declaration, provided 
that the type carries through, but I do not remember offhand.

create table1([integer_date] [integer int_date])

The former is how pySqlite2 links adapters and converters to the query.

The fact that there's a Highway to Hell but only a Stairway to Heaven says a 
lot about anticipated traffic volume.
