More work on letting the SIP demo work stand-alone (PyTable driver for PySQLite progresses...)

SQLite is a fairly straightforward engine, but it feels far less evolved than PostgreSQL, or even MySQL (which itself feels less evolved than PostgreSQL). It provides a set of "pragma" commands to make it easy to query the current database schema (perform introspection).

Simple, one does not.

I'm going to write a few tests to make sure that the general approach works, but I'm intending to let users who care about particular extensions write tests and submit ...
