    Description

      If you have a document like:

      {
        "_id": "foo",
        "tags": ["a", "b", "c"]
      }
      

      ...then you should be able to run queries that find e.g. all documents with "a" as a tag, and it should be indexed. Currently there doesn't seem to be any way to do this except as an in-memory selector, which is a real bummer, because it's a super common use case. (Tags, categories, labels, etc.)

      Originally I thought this was how $elemMatch worked, and I was surprised to learn that that's not the case.
