If you stick to the API and don't modify the attribute lists directly then you should be ok. We may cleanup the names of API functions to make it more consistent before 3.0, but these would be simple fixes on your side.

If you are considering contributing the module back, please use the connections API to manage the connection pool to Couchbase, we will not accept modules that manage their own connection pools.

If it can be developed as a driver for rlm_sql (despite the name there's not too much sql specific stuff in there), then that would be ideal.
