      Description

      One of the data types in the tools resembles this:

      noformat
      type foo struct

      { Bar *bson.D }

      noformat

      Even with the Stitch-based patches to mgo/bson, this fails unmarshaling with the error "reflect.MakeSlice of non-slice type".

      (N.B. Changing the Bar field to *bson.M works.)

      This ticket is a reminder that after the planned changes to the BSON encoder and mgobson, we need this particular use case to work to help users who want to use mgobson as a stepping stone converting to the Go driver.
