      I am using the official C# driver v1.4.2. I noticed that I cannot remove the system collection `system.indexes` from my database (this is rather expected) but I can rename this collection (this is rather unexpected).

      > db.system.indexes.renameCollection("old_indexes")
      { "ok" : 1 }
      > show collections
      old_indexes
