I know this is really a nit pick but I see that the OpenGroup folks have
published a new shiney UNIX standard called SUSv4 or Single UNIX
Specification version 4 or even ye "The Open Group Base Specifications
Issue 7, 2018 edition IEEE Std 1003.1-2017 (Revision of IEEE Std
1003.1-2008)" just for fun. This :
Not exactly a manpage to be sure but it is the standard.
So perhaps a link could be placed on the top of the "When To Use" beside
the "fopen()" manpage thing to "he.net" whatever that is. Surely the
"competes with fopen()" is a small joke in any case. OKay I will go back
to picking nits.

Their big claim to fame was that they were one of the pioneers of IPv6, making tools, tunnels, and prefixes available to a wide range of organizations, including individuals, long before most of the rest of the internet even cared about IPv6.

Not really… it is exactly as it says. SQLite is designed to be used in situations were a developer might be tempted to just use CSV or TSV files. The link is only there to clue in non-programmers (or those that have never used C) what they heck the webpage is talking about. They don’t need to understand it, beyond the fact it is an API call.
