      Description

      A "snapshot query" sounds like it operates in an isolated transaction, when in fact it simply omits duplicate documents from the results. I propose renaming "snapshot" to something more descriptive.

      If "deduplicate" seems long, we could use "dedup": there's precedent in createIndex's "dropDups" flag. "unique" is another possibility.

      "snapshot" can be gently deprecated.
