In the GeoDjango docs (, it says that you have to use pysqlite2 because only it supports enable_load_extension.

However, the Python docs( show that after Python 2.7, sqlite3 also supports enable_load_extension() and associated functionality.

I've just refactored the GeoDjango installation docs. I've now prefixed the pysqlite2 paragraphe with "If you are on Python 2.6".

Any review of the new "Installing Spatialite" page welcome.
