Hi Joshua,

Since we currently do support mongodb as an *optional* storage driver,
and some distros do recommend its usage, then surely we should test this
driver fully in the upstream gate to support those users who take that

(i.e. those users who accept MongoDB Inc's assurances[1] in regard to
licensing of the client-side driver)
