      We should add more documentation on how to use CodecOptions. For example, it's very simple to configure pymongo to return dictionaries that also support convenient attribute access:

      from pymongo import MongoClient
      
      class AttributeDict(dict):
          """A dict that supports attribute access."""
          def __getattr__(self, key):
              return self[key]
      
          def __setattr__(self, key, value):
              self[key] = value
      
      client = MongoClient(document_class=AttributeDict)
      client.test.test.insert_one({'field': {'nested': {'field': 1}}})
      doc = client.test.test.find_one({})
      assert doc.field.nested.field == 1
