Starting in sqlite version 3.3.1 (Jan 2006) multiple threads can share the same connection. Python allows you do use this with the check_same_thread parameter of sqlite3.connect() method. It's almost certain users have a late enough version of sqlite that they can use this option. While we could document "check your version before using this feature" (see it would be nicer to check the actual database for support. Code can be written and tested on one machine and deployed to another machine. Using this feature on an very old version of sqlite can crash or possibly corrupt the database.

Thanks for the patch. I'm not sure we can apply the patch to bugfix branches. You can use SQLITE_VERSION_NUMBER to check sqlite3 version.

This can go into bugfix branches. In fact, it's most likely to be helpful there because they are more likely to be running with a version of sqlite 10 years old. I use the sqlite3_libversion_number() call because I'm testing against the version of sqlite actually loaded. The SQLITE_VERSION_NUMBER define is set at compile time.
