    Description

      This is good:

      > db.test.insert({"x.y":1})
      Fri Oct 22 13:08:29 uncaught exception: can't have . in field names [x.y]

      This was not good for a user to stumble on:

      > db.test.insert({"x":1})  
      > db.test.update({"x":1}, {"$set":{"y":{"z.z":1}}})
      not okForStorage

      I wish the $set error also explained the problem with the dot in the key name.
