Exporting from PostGIS to SpatiaLite

SpatiaLite is a relatively new GIS file format based on SQLite, which uses a single file to store multiple layers and data tables. It is an alternative format to ESRI Shapefiles, which have several legacy issues (such as storage types and lengths of column names, etc.) Furthermore it is simple to distribute and run, as there is only one file.
