I second this idea (... on the other hand, maybe Matts can hack sqlite to add such functionality -- naah).
`perldoc DBI' says "For SELECT statements... The execute method does not return the number of rows that will be returned by the query (because most databases can't tell in advance), it simply returns a true value.".
So, since DBI users are not supposed to rely on this, they shouldn't ;)
