      Description

      There's a --collection argument for mongofiles that should be removed (at least from the help) if it doesn't do anything (I suspect it doesn't,) but if it has a purpose, I can update the documentation accordingly.

          I was tempted to open a new issue – since the title of this issue is misleading – suggesting that there is just a cosmetic problem with having this extraneous --collections argument. The actual bug is that mongofiles doesn't work with buckets, and there is no workaround. I'd put this as MAJOR.

          Agree - title of this ticket should be changed to something like "mongofiles only works on 'fs' collection". Fix should be to add support and update the documentation to reflect this purpose.
