      Description

      The Yum package is called "mongodb-server" whereas the Apt package is "mongodb-10gen"
      Also, once installed, the "Yum" package creates a service init script called "mongod" whereas the apt package creates as service called "mongodb".

      It would be great if the package and service names were consistent across installers.

      When trying to automate installs with tools like Chef and Puppet, we currently need to check what environment we're running in in order to branch the installer logic to do the right thing. Having standard package and service names would simplify these automation scripts.
