the simplest way to do this is with 2 view queries, and compute the intersection.

the other option is to emit the tags list in all possible permutations (you can cut them down
a bit if you only emit them sorted by alpha order). this will make a much larger index, especially
if docs tend to have more than 3 or so tags.
