Ok, that makes sense, but tbh, setting up 3rd party testing is going to be
as much or more work than writing the driver. Given schedule constraints,
it probably isn¹t feasible right now. I think for starters, I will write
some unit tests that ensure that changes to the storage interface don¹t
break the driver, and will work on a 3rd party testing strategy over time.
