I was quite surprised to see sqlite3 being the default. I would have sworn
the default being MySQL.
But at least the description for bacula-director-sqlite3 mentions sqlitt3
being only useful for small or test installations. (Maybe we can put in a
warning via NEWS for Buster [too late for Stretch for that] that SQLite3
is unsupported and should no longer be used.)
Concerning the default database: I think upstream favors PostgreSQL.
