      Description

      The docs for Database Name Case Sensitivity say: "Since database names are case insensitive in MongoDB, database names cannot differ only by the case of the characters."

      I have not been able to verify this using the mongodb go driver or the mongo shell. An informal discussion with a member of the query team led me to believe this may not be correct. I'm curious if this is platform dependent or possibly incorrect? I attempted to verify db name case-insensitivity using the go driver and mongo shell on a Mac.
