I'm actually going to argue that you shouldn't be able to do that if
the api you're testing is sane.  I've just tried to debug the new
failures[0] you added to the tests for the Plugins but can't keep the
api for Storage->config and Plugin->config straight in my head.

There's something about 4 positional parameters that need to be ''
rather than undef for falseness that twists my noodle, and I can't
shake the feeling that potential third-party Plugin authors won't get
it either.

I'm going to eat some pie now, after which I'll see if I can't find
some way to make this suck less.
