It wasn't shot down - I said that it's "assuming sqlite is released with no
license whatsoever".  I don't understand this public domain stuff, so when I
looked on their website, I saw something that seemed to be license-ish in
nature, and so I also added "I don't think this is the case"

If public-domain == no license whatsoever, then license=('none') is probably
the way to go, and the "none" license should be recognized as syntactically
