mongoose: Use a already initialized mongoose connection. This is the only required option to pass if you are using mongoose.

mongo: Use a native mongoDb driver, must specify the Mongo.Db using the db option.

db: This is to specify the connected database when using a native mongo client.

More options like extension rejection, file number limiting, and file size will becoming in the future, for now these are the only ones.
