since sqlite3 is included in the standard library, it would be useful to have access to the command line tool that's part of sqlite.  Including the command-line binary for each respective OS in the respective Scripts or bin folder would allow python users to create a connection in order to examine their sqlite databases and perform some manual operations easily.  While the tool isn't in python, it's not that big of a file and such a tool is a pretty fundamental part of having a database(miniaturized or not).

-1. On Linux, and many other systems based on or using free software, the sqlite command line tool is readily available, and including it would conflict with the one provided by the system vendor.

For Windows, pre-built binaries for command line access are available from http://sqlite.org/download.html

Indeed, -1. We don't make a habit of distributing 3rd party binaries.
