I've been using sqlite with fpc/lazarus (though using zeos or direct 
access instead of sqldb) as an embedded, simple, database for a handful 
of projects that run mostly unattended 24 hours a day and so far it's 
worked well.

I'm not using it with fpc (my deployed applications fits more the 
embedded sqlite model than the more complex client/server one) but I'm 
using it for our internal time tracking application and it gave us no 
problem in the last 4 years, it was a set-up and forget thing.
