^A 3-dimensional R*Tree has 7 columns.
^A 4-dimensional R*Tree has 9 columns.
^And a 5-dimensional R*Tree has 11 columns.  ^The SQLite R*Tree implementation
does not support R*Trees wider than 5 dimensions.
</p>

<p>
^The first column of an SQLite R*Tree must always be an integer
primary key.
^The min/max-value pair columns are stored as
32-bit floating point values for "rtree" virtual tables or as
32-bit signed integers in "rtree_i32" virtual tables.
^Unlike regular SQLite tables which
can store data in a variety of datatypes and formats, the R*Tree
indices rigidly enforce these storage types.  ^Attempts to insert
something other than an integer into the first column, or something
other than a numeric value into the other columns, will result
in an error.

^A 3-dimensional R*Tree has 7 columns.

</p>

<p>
^The first column of an SQLite R*Tree is similar to an integer primary 
key column of a normal SQLite table. It may only store a 64-bit signed
integer value. Inserting a NULL value into this column causes SQLite
to automatically generate a new unique primary key value. If an attempt
is made to insert any other non-integer value into this column,
the r-tree module silently converts it to an integer before writing it
into the database.
<p>
^The min/max-value pair columns are stored as 32-bit floating point values for
"rtree" virtual tables or as 32-bit signed integers in "rtree_i32" virtual
tables.  ^Unlike regular SQLite tables which can store data in a variety of
datatypes and formats, the R*Tree rigidly enforce these storage types. 
If any other type of value is inserted into such a column, the r-tree
module silently converts it to the required type before writing the
new record to the database.
