<li> Add the [PRAGMA legacy_alter_table=ON] command that causes the
     "ALTER TABLE RENAME" command to behave as it did in SQLite versions 3.24.0
     and earlier: references to the renamed table inside the bodies of triggers
     and views are not updated.  This new pragma provides a compatibility
     work around for older programs that expected the older, wonky behavior
     of ALTER TABLE RENAME.

an as-deployed configuration using only published and documented interfaces.
TH3 is designed for use with embedded devices, and is compatible with
DO-178B.  Every release of the public-domain SQLite is tested using TH3,
and so all users benefit from the TH3 tests.  But the TH3 tests are not
themselves public.  Hardware or system manufactures who want to have
TH3 test run on their systems can negotiation a service agreement to have
the SQLite Developers run those tests.</p>
