      Description

      We should clarify that the default for --fork is false, and that reasonable cases exist for turning it off other than testing, such as the calling process handling daemonization. For example upstart by default, start-stop-daemon in Debian with --background, and the homebrew default wrapper.

      http://docs.mongodb.org/master/reference/program/mongod/#cmdoption--fork

      Current text is:
      "Enables a daemon mode for mongod that runs the process in the background. This is the normal mode of operation in production and production-like environments but may not be desirable for testing."
