That question is off-topic for this list, even if the module in question only 
works over SQLite.  It might be on topic if it were exposing a bug in or a 
feature request for DBD::SQLite itself, but yours isn't.

You should ask instead to a forum specific to ORLite, or ask its author 
directly, or failing that, ask in the dbi-users forum instead.
