    Description

      I'm not sure if this is by design but I have observed this behavior change between WiredTiger and MMAPv1.

      Using MMAP the covered distinct result has the same bson type as the data that was inserted. However when using WiredTiger the distinct result has type double instead of Int32.

      I realize that this is due to the new index key format for WiredTiger but I was surprised that distinct would product this result.
