It’s just data

Full Text Search — SQLite

SQLite is part of android and gears.  Despite being under development for over a year, and part of an actively developed code base, and included in gears, full text search isn’t integrated into the build system just yet.  Because of its non-standard “virtual” tables, it can’t be used directly with encasulation layers like Python DB-API, but can be used directly using minimal wrappers like APSW.  Such a build also requires some manual steps, but the end result is a single shared library that contains SQLite, FTS, and APSW.
