upgrading ancient sqlite3?

My web is app having major issues with some queries on sqlite3 version that is running on PA. Turns out PythonAnywhere runs some ancient version of Sqlite that causes silent 500 errors on some queries.

(virtual_env) 21:45 ~/mysite $ sqlite3 SQLite version 3.8.2 2013-12-06 14:53:30 Enter ".help" for instructions Enter SQL statements terminated with a ";" sqlite> 2013-12-06, trully impressive.

We don't chase the most recent bleeding-edge versions of all the packages that we install - we wouldn't have time to do anything else! We use the packaged versions that are included with the OS, so some of them may be a little old.
