[wingide-users] Sqlite Wing IDE Plugin

Two standalone tools (both free!) that I regularly use for SQLite 
maintenance are
     a) FireFox SQLite Manager (simple browser interface, lacks some 
basic features)
     b) SQLite Expert (personal edition)

Personally I would not like to see db viewing or manipulation tools 
integrated with Wing IDE.  The IDE emphasis should be on ease of 
development, and not try and be all things to all people.

Just my 2c worth.
