php5-sqlite hasn't been removed. What has been removed is support for
sqlite 2. Eg, we still have support for sqlite 1 and 3. I think this was
a mistake of the maintainer, unless php-mdb2-sqlite-driver uses sqlite
2. Note that support for sqlite has also been removed from roundcube du
to removal of sqlite 2 support, and no upstream support for sqlite 3.

Now, what I could do is build a package, then you test it, and see if it
works. But maybe, you have other types of drivers available? Can't you
use MySQL or PGSQL instead? I can see that both are available in Debian
already. I wouldn't see this as a big limitation (eg: MySQL or PGSQL are
anyway faster than SQLite). Thoughts?
