I'd like to include RelStorage support in ZODB 3.9.  The current patch  
is insufficient because it doesn't include tests or interfaces that  
describe the interaction between RelStorage and ZODB.  I'll need these  
in the next few weeks, if support is to be included in 3.9. The sooner  
the better.
