When All Else Fails, Reflect on the Fail

While coding the MongoDB integration for Drupal 8 I hit a wall first with the InstallerKernel which was easy to remedy with a simple core patch but then a similar problem occurred with the TestRunnerKernel and that one is not so simple to fix: these things were not made with extensibility in mind. You might hit some other walls -- the code below is not MongoDB specific. But note how unusual this is: you won’t hit similar problems often. Drupal 8 very extensible but it has its limits.
