I think we can come up with a cleaner, more future-proof design. I'd like to avoid special
casing for situations we think are common but turn out not to be.

What d you mean by built-in filter ? How would it be called ? If it's
like _count in reduce function it doesn't solve the case i'm trying to
solve, ie not creating a function for common case. But I think you
mean smth like built_in=... , but am not sure it's needed here since
we have only one case on POST.

So which usage do you expect ? Any example?
