Ideally every backend should be able to compile and execute any ibis expression.

We could maintain an expression => expected result mapping somewhere (e.g. in ibis.expr package) which every backend tries to execute.
In case of unsupported operation the backend should raise the appropriate exception. This way we could even generate an operation support matrix (table) to the docs
