Yeah, in my tiny amount of experience with SQLite, putting this sort of 
restriction in WHERE rather than ON didn’t seem to make a practical difference; 
no doubt the query planner is smart enough to DTRT.  But switching them should 
make it slightly easier for humans to parse, so is probably worth doing while 
you’re here, if you have a few spare cycles.
