Task to convert
modules/system/lib/Drupal/system/Tests/Database to phpunit where possible. There are a total of 4:
Database/DatabaseExceptionWrapperTest.php Database/EmptyStatementTest.php Database/ConnectionUnitTest.php Database/SchemaTest.php
From initial testing, I think only one of them can be converted (without more work around mocking a database connection)
