In that case, maybe you should use DBD::AnyData (formerly called
DBD::RAM) which can create in-memory databases. Dump from SQLite into
the in-memory database, manipulate it as desired, dump from the
in-memory database back to SQLite, all using SQL.
Then again, maybe I misunderstand what you want to accomplish or am just
applying my hammer (I'm the author of DBD::AnyData) to that thing that
looks like a nail to me.
