Tiger: missing "Advertised features"?

So, while trying to figure out how to use SQLite, I've been digging around everywhere trying to find out how to applescript access an sqlite database. Sure, there's always do shell script "sqlite3..." but that's *SO* kludgey. Especially when, according to Apple's list of 200+ features, they list:

Data Events Suite

Create and parse SQLite databases.


on their Applescript Tiger Features page. Umm... I've looked in the Developer network, dictionaries, google, Spotlight. Nada, nuthin', zero, zip, zilch.

False Advertising? I doubt it. Lack of documentation? More than likely. Anyone care to point out where this (and other) missing features are?
