<li>There is an additional quasi-persistent "<tt>-wal</tt>" file and
    "<tt>-shm</tt>" shared memory file associated with each
    database, which can make SQLite less appealing for use as an 
    [application file-format].
<li>There is the extra operation of [checkpointing] which, though automatic
    by default, is still something that application developers need to
    be mindful of.
<li>WAL works best with smaller transactions.  WAL does
    not work well for very large transactions.  For transactions larger than
    about 100 megabytes, traditional rollback journal modes will likely
    be faster.  For transactions in excess of a gigabyte, WAL mode may 
    fail with an I/O or disk-full error.
    It is recommended that one of the rollback journal modes be used for
    transactions larger than a few dozen megabytes.

<h2>How WAL Works</h2>

<p>The traditional rollback journal works by writing a copy of the
original unchanged database content into a separate rollback journal file

    Beginning with [version 3.11.0], WAL mode works as efficiently with
    large transactions as does rollback mode.
