Overview
Comment:Rather than document goofy behavior, it seems better to make the behavior less goofy. (Was: Updates to the sqlite3_last_insert_rowid() documentation - to make it clear that the function does not work for virtual tables.)

** This routine does not report on the rowids for INSERTs into
** [virtual tables].  Some virtual tables, such as [FTS3] and [RTREE]
** implement INSERT by recursively inserting content into 
** so-called "shadow tables".  If an insert into a virtual table does
** result in an insert into a shadow table, then sqlite3_last_insert_rowid()
** will report the rowid inserted into the shadow table, which is
** probably unrelated to the rowid of the row inserted into the
** virtual table.
