Bug 1077148 part 2 - Remove hack to avoid sqlite being linked against mozglue on mac. r=gps This hack has actually not been actively used since sqlite, nss and nspr are all folded together, because no shared library is actually linked in db/sqlite3/src.

This directory contains common Python code.

The basic rule is that if Python code is cross-module (that's "module" in the
Mozilla meaning - as in "module ownership") and is MPL-compatible, it should
go here.

What should not go here:

* Python that is not MPL-compatible (see other-licenses/)
* Python that has good reason to remain close to its "owning" (Mozilla)
  module (e.g. it is only being consumed from there).
