To be honest, I'd prefer to avoid a dependency on sqlite in Wget, even a
configurable one. I'd much prefer to see a solution based on a separate
program that converts from cookies.sqlite to a cookies.txt file.
Besides, that solution would work with more tools than Wget ("do one
thing, and do it well"¹).

¹ Not that Wget adheres particularly well to that philosophy...

Lest you think I'm just being unfeeling to your needs, I should point
out that I'm also running on an Ubuntu 8.04, and have found the
sqlite-based cookies files a supreme annoyance. I'd just prefer a more
general, scriptable solution.

However, if you choose to complete this work (you said you're nearly
done), I won't mind if you place a link to your patch on the Wiki front
page (http://wget.addictivecode.org/FrontPage).
