sorry, but not a chance. sqlite(2) is 6 years overdue and unmaintained upstream.
And it is my opinion it should be removed from wheezy completely and php5-sqlite
was one of the obstacles.

Also we will ship php5-5.4.x in wheezy where upstream had removed sqlite
extension as well. So it doesn't really make sense to

I could add Breaks: roundcube header to the php5-sqlite package, but I would
need a version number where it will be fixed, so I can add versioned dependency.

Roundcube has to deal with the fact it's using 6 years old unmaintained code.

I am sorry I cannot help you, but we just could not drag old code just because
few stuborn reverse dependencies.
