I'm in two minds on the whole autodiscovery issue, yup it's cool and
can save some effort, but actually writing down the columns you expect
to be using has a certain documentation value, plus it allows you to
mutate your database with the same scripts that access it.

As has been mentioned here before, using SQLite has in the past given
me amounts of pain with concurrent access.  If anyone can give me a
good solution for that as ever I'd be glad to use it.
