Because there is no distinguished basis, it would only support the option function of ModulesWithBasis.module_morphism:

        def module_morphism(self, on_basis=None, matrix=None, function=None,
                            diagonal=None, triangular=None, unitriangular=False,
            Construct a module morphism from ``self`` to ``codomain``.

            Let ``self`` be a module `X` with a basis indexed by `I`.
            This constructs a morphism `f: X \to Y` by linearity from
            a map `I \to Y` which is to be its restriction to the
            basis `(x_i)_{i \in I}` of `X`. Some variants are possible


            - ``self`` -- a parent `X` in ``ModulesWithBasis(R)`` with
              basis `x=(x_i)_{i\in I}`.

            Exactly one of the four following options must be
            specified in order to define the morphism:

            - ``on_basis`` -- a function `f` from `I` to `Y`
            - ``diagonal`` -- a function `d` from `I` to `R`
*KEEP*      - ``function`` -- a function `f` from `X` to `Y`
            - ``matrix``   -- a matrix of size `\dim Y \times \dim X`
              (if the keyword ``side`` is set to ``'left'``) or
              `\dim Y \times \dim X` (if this keyword is ``'right'``)

            Further options include:

*KEEP*      - ``codomain`` -- the codomain `Y` of the morphism (default:
              ``f.codomain()`` if it's defined; otherwise it must be specified)

*KEEP*      - ``category`` -- a category or ``None`` (default: `None``)

            - ``zero`` -- the zero of the codomain (default: ````);
              can be used (with care) to define affine maps.
              Only meaningful with ``on_basis``.

            - ``position`` -- a non-negative integer specifying which
              positional argument is used as the input of the function `f`
              (default: 0); this is currently only used with ``on_basis``.

            - ``triangular`` --  (default: ``None``) ``"upper"`` or
              ``"lower"`` or ``None``:

              * ``"upper"`` - if the
                of the image of the basis vector `x_i` is `i`, or

              * ``"lower"`` - if the
                of the image of the basis vector `x_i` is `i`.

            - ``unitriangular`` -- (default: ``False``) a boolean.
              Only meaningful for a triangular morphism.
              As a shorthand, one may use ``unitriangular="lower"``
              for ``triangular="lower", unitriangular=True``.

            - ``side`` -- "left" or "right" (default: "left")
              Only meaningful for a morphism built from a matrix.

Providing this method would allow us to simplify #30094 a tiny bit.

LGTM, except maybe for some pyflakes error reported by the patchbot, which are not clear to me.

You can ignore the pyflakes errors since they are unrelated to this ticket.
