This matches the behavior of the C decoder (returning SON using the C decoder is dramatically slower than returning a plain dict). This also hides from the user the fact that BSON is ordered - internally we use SON when needed (to make sure that _id is first, to make sure that command verbs are first), but for user documents it shouldn't matter anyway.
this has been deprecated for some time, in favor of creating a Connection instance and getting a Database instance from the connection. i'm removing this before the release because i'd rather not have people get confused as to why it is lying around. the only real useful functionality left here that isn't recreated elsewhere is auto-ref and auto-deref. this will probably get added back to the driver as a SONManipulator at some point.
