Per discussion at, the default converters in SQLite3 have several bugs and are probably not worth continuing to maintain, so I propose deprecating them and removing them in a later version of Python.

Since the converters are opt-in, this should not affect most users of SQLite3.

See also bpo-26651 for a related proposal to deprecate the converter/adapter infrastructure entirely.

The proposal in this bug is more limited: remove the default converters (though I think the default adapters should stay), but continue to allow users to define their own converters.
