I want transactional DDL too. I was tremendously surprised that I could not duplicate the way sqlite3 behaves on the command line from witin pysqlite.

Instead of this patch, I would rather be able to instruct pysqlite to always begin a transaction for any kind of statement (I hear this is a requirement for DB-API compliance) and never perform an implicit commit for any reason. For example, someone on the google code project had a complaint that 'SAVEPOINT' (create a subtransaction) automatically commits because pysqlite doesn't know about it.

I tried to trick pysqlite into doing what I wanted by prepending /* update */ to every CREATE TABLE statement but it didn't seem to quite work. Instead, I would prefer a pysqlite that does not strcmp(statement) at all.
