The "SQLite Folks" is actually pretty much just Richard. He likes PostgreSQL
a lot, and specifically designed SQLite to be compatible with PostgreSQL.
Migrating an app (or dual-DB support) is easy, just ask David Wheeler.
The main thing we could do for SQLite is offer Richard some PR and other
"community" support. It's a terrific little embedded database that just
needs to have its profile raised.
