one thing to watch out for with sqlite:

It doesn't scale easily with multiple processes accessing the same DB.
The write-lock timeout is short by default and a "modifying"
query might error out.

If this per-user DB will be used by multiple processes
(think multiple JMAP connection in parallel from a web frontend)
+ LMTP delivery at the same time, this might occur sooner or later.

I've learned about this issue the hard way with a central sqlite DB
for ActiveSync device management on our horde installation.
