NO FUN! I hope that the devels will do something about this during
their 'Hot Week of Crazy Nonstop Coding'..

This is what I have:

  Installed: 2.8.17-4build1
  Candidate: 2.8.17-4build1
  Version table:
 *** 2.8.17-4build1 0
        500 http://fi.archive.ubuntu.com hardy/main Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Hmm.. trying to find an old sqlite doesn't seem to be easy:
and I wouldn't like to .. OK, I don't know how to compile the old
sqlite so that I don't have to install it in my system but that KPA
would be able to use it.

So this all is converted to a request for the devels to make KPA use
newer sqlite!! If this is the only way, it's about the same as not
having the exif database..
