tags 23566 patch


I'm sorry that nobody responded to your bug report earlier.  I expect
the problem is that there aren't any sqlite experienced people working
on Emacs right now (at least, ignorance of sql(ite) is why *I* passed on
this bug the first time around).

The :version should be updated when the default value is changed.

This looks reasonable to me, and is small enough to install without
copyright assignment.  Could you add a commit message too? (format as
described in CONTRIBUTE)

I think the idea is more to restrict the completion to database files
for convenience, not protection from damage.  But since there doesn't
seem to be much of a convention for sqlite file extensions, setting the
default to nil seems okay.
