Question about the WAL checkpoint
quote from https://www.sqlite.org/cgi/src/doc/wal2/doc/wal2.md

"Checkpointers do not block writers, and writers do not block checkpointers. "

If i want to do checkpoint in other thread and write in main thread,  I has to create 2 connection for the same database in single thread mode?

" There are also circumstances in which long-running readers may prevent a checkpointer from checkpointing the entire wal file"

If a statment finished with sqlite3_step, but not closed so I can reuse it late.  In this case that mean a long-running readers block prevent a checkpointer?
