Using https://github.com/dburles/mongo-collection-instances could help with the mess of searching for all collections on the global scope and by accessing the mongo driver. The simple approach by this package could be of a lot of help, what do you guys think? I'd start with it soonish.
@gterrono and I were actually talking about that this morning. There's some concern whether this approach would capture some of the earliest collections that get created in other package code, before the wrapper is in place. Definitely worth a try, though. I think @gterrono was thinking of starting with that?
