Example: mongodb document have a _id.$oid field

Something like this ?

var Model = Backbone.Model.extend({
    idAttribute: '_id',
    parse: function (data) {
        var id = data[this.idAttribute].$oid;
        data[this.idAttribute] = id;
        return data;

model = new Model({
    "_id": {
        "$oid": "4dc7f7b7bd0fb9a86c6c80bd"
    "javadriver": "is silly"
}, {
    parse: true

As stated in #1232, nested models/ids are not supported directly by Backbone. This type of functionality should be provided by a plugin or extension.
