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). - -- Micah J.
