    Description

      Arguments to createCollection need better validation:

      • Start mongod with the WT storage engine

        $ rm -rf db && mkdir db && mongod --dbpath db  --storageEngine wiredtiger

      • Create a collection

        > db.createCollection("foo", {storageEngine: {wiredTiger: {configString: "foo=bar"}}})
        { "ok" : 1 }

      The casing of the storage engine is incorrect, it should be wiredtiger (no uppercase T), but the options are ignored without errors in the shell or the logs. For that matter the following also works:

      > db.createCollection("foo", {storageEngine: {x: {y : "z"}}})
      { "ok" : 1 }

      This is bound to cause come confusion among users.
