Subject: [PATCH] Fix truncated output in ob-sqlite.el (Was: Bug: sqlite output truncated?)

I've attached a patch to address this.

The issue is that ob-sqlite.el uses org-babel-string-read, which 
purposefully removes double-quotes. I think this is unintended 
behaviour, and it only seems to be used with ob-sqlite.el. I added a 
minor function to bypass the part of org-babel-string-read that was 
stripping out the double-quotes and use the rest of the function.

I tried ob-sql with the mysql engine and didn't experience the same bug, 
so I'm pretty confident that this is an isolated issue.
