I'm not familiar with this assembly, but writing an assembly for SQL  
Server CE with an SQLite backend sounds rather odd because there  
already is an assembly for an SQLite backend and the System.Data  
architecture usually makes it fairly easy to switch between  
implementations using e.g. #defines. Also, as far as I know you can't  
compile from Mono for the .NET CF without serious hacking just yet.

So, if you have to compile with Microsoft tools for CE then you can  
use the original Microsoft assembly. Otherwise you can use the  
existing and working data provider assemblies for code that's  
supposed to run on Linux only anyway.

Just a thought.
