Sometimes it's useful to have direct access to the storage a TinyDB instance uses if the storage exposes additional methods/properties besides read() and write(). For example the CachingMiddleware has a flush() method, which one cannot call manually without using the internal db._storage variable.

Maybe we could expose the storage using a read-only property on TinyDB instances.

@eugene-eeo What do you think?

@msiemens yeah I don't see any issues with this. I guess we have to add a warning to the docs that if you access storage then you need to know what you're doing.
