Did you look at http://www.sqlite.org/cvstrac/wiki?p=ConverterTools ?

I'd try one of these if I need it. Otherwise it seems easier for me to
parse XML than to try out all the options of mysqladmin, which probably
still won't produce anything that can directly be fed to sqlite3.

It would be a nice programming exercise. Hint: You can pretty safely
ignore all type information you get from MySQL, because types in SQLite
depend on the inserted values, and not the table definition.

I'd probably create the sqlite tables first by editing the database
schemas produced by mysqldump to make the acceptable to feed to
sqlite.

I would then write a script which connects to both databases at once
and copies the table data across.

(At least that is what I did last time I needed to do that which was
from MSSQL->MySQL).

You'll find that different databases have subtly different ways of
doing things (eg autoincrement fields on mysql) so you'll most likely
need a custom script anyway.
