944846776 MDU6SXNzdWU5NDQ4NDY3NzY= 297 Option for importing CSV data using the SQLite .import mechanism 9599 open 0     6 2021-07-14T22:36:41Z 2021-07-18T12:59:20Z   OWNER  

As seen in https://til.simonwillison.net/sqlite/import-csv - .mode csv and then .import school.csv schools is hugely faster than importing via sqlite-utils insert and doing the work in Python - but it can only be implemented by shelling out to the sqlite3 CLI tool, it's not functionality that is exposed to the Python sqlite3 module.

An option to use this would be useful - maybe something like this:

sqlite-utils insert blah.db blah blah.csv --fast
