It turns out SQLite supports composite foreign keys: https://www.sqlite.org/foreignkeys.html#fk_composite

Their example looks like this:

CREATE TABLE album(
  albumartist TEXT,
  albumname TEXT,
  albumcover BINARY,
  PRIMARY KEY(albumartist, albumname)
);

CREATE TABLE song(
  songid     INTEGER,
  songartist TEXT,
  songalbum TEXT,
  songname   TEXT,
  FOREIGN KEY(songartist, songalbum) REFERENCES album(albumartist, albumname)
);

Here's what that looks like in sqlite-utils:

In [1]: import sqlite_utils                                                                                                                

In [2]: import sqlite3                                                                                                                     

In [3]: conn = sqlite3.connect(":memory:")                                                                                                 

In [4]: conn

Out[9]: 
[ForeignKey(table='song', column='songartist', other_table='album', other_column='albumartist'),
 ForeignKey(table='song', column='songalbum', other_table='album', other_column='albumname')]

The table appears to have two separate foreign keys, when actually it has a single compound composite foreign key.
