> Is SQLITE_DQS really that different? Yes. It's just as different as I said. Exposing it in pragma compile_options would have this benefit: Somebody who wonders, "Can I be sloppy with SQL literal and identifier quotation?" will have a slightly more conveniently gained answer than trying some malformed SQL. As I see it, those who know enough to understand what malformed SQL is **and** to use "pragma compile_options" will also have low motivation to write malformed SQL. Hence the convenience is hypothetical and the utility (in practice, counted over all users) is low.
