By "encrypted" I mean if you look at the data that's stored in the
database field, it's not the same data that I put in. SQLite encodes
blob data on the way in and out - there are api calls for this.
Doesn't matter if it's text data or image data or whatever.

At any rate, Chris sent me the proper driver and now all is well.
