Oh, yes, of course. I was not meaning to use ets tables always, this part should
be customizable. By default, we would get the normal gen_server, so that nothing
is broken.

I don't think there is a need for a new behaviour, because they look exactly the
same to the client, who doesn't care about the implementation.
