Get SQLite via `winget` on Windows

Microsoft is finally releasing an official CLI package manager, at last.

Would be nice to easily get the SQLite CLI tools using it.

From the little I read, the integration looks doable. FWIW.

There are other ecosystems too, of course, like Chocolatey and others,
but with winget being bundled by default with Windows soon, and pushed by
Microsoft itself, would seem natural to support it. My $0.02.

There does not appear to exist a package for SQLite yet:

C:\Users\ddevienne> winget search sqlite

While one can get PostgreSQL on Windows that way it seems:

C:\Users\ddevienne> winget search postgresql
Name                        Id                         Version       Match
