QB on Mac

I tried out QB 2006/7 for the Mac, and discovered that the data files are actually SQLite databases; perhaps they're also SQLite on Windows.
To retrieve the value of one particular setting, at one point I ran the 'sqlite' command interpreter on the QB datafile, poked around the schema a bit, and found the setting I needed. The schema isn't documented, of course, and will probably change in future versions. It should also simplify the task of writing a QB-to-free software converter.
