Apologies for the delay in reporting back, but I've done many hours of 
testing on this. I've run four sets of tests, with sqlite3 3.7.13 and 
3.7.15, both with and without Warren's patch. The bottom line is that 
Subversion appears to function identically in all four cases, and there 
was no significant difference in runtime performance (i.e. the time 
taken to run the tests).

I can supply more details if you need them, but essentially Subversion 
appears to function happily with sqlite3 3.7.13 or 3.7.15, both with or 
without the patch.
