      Description

      Since the default ObjectIds contain a timestamp, it would be nice if the _id index could also be used as a TTL index. Ideally the user would just attach an

      {expireAfterSeconds : x}

      option to their existing _id index, and the TTL monitor would be smart enough to delete old documents based on the timestamp embedded in the ObjectIds.
