Agreed.  If SQlite gets the job done for some folk, then that's the
tool they ought to use.  I was just a tad bemused by the apparent
claim that it could be considered a substitute for Postgres (or even
MySQL) in general.

I think there's some merit in the idea of bundling both PG and SQlite
support in future PHP releases.  You'd have both a high-end and a
low-end solution available.  There are probably some people in the
middle who'd complain that neither solution quite hits their sweet spot
like MySQL did, but I'd bet that overall this'd cover quite a nice
range of problems.
