And what makes it complex across a multinode cluster? You'd need a
method to push that query out to all shards, and then each shard would
do the above. You'd need a rule that the unique key cannot be changed,
otherwise the doc might need to switch shards, but that's probably the
case already. Is there more to it than that?
