There is theory and there is practice. There are lots of things that unittests
can't or often don't catch. I don't think it is reasonable at all to add a
completely new and untested storage backend at the last minute, while the usual
advice for module inclusion is to first publish it on PyPI to get feedback and
Another possibility is for the module to be clearly labeled as experimental.
