    Description

      Mongo tools (mongoimport/export) now makes no distinction between String and Symbol BSON types when importing/exporting into the json.

      This makes difficult to use these tools for data transfer in projects where symbols are explicitly used.

      It would be great to read/write symbols in json in a similar way other nontrivial types are stored in json now, like

      {key: {$sym: 'value'}}
