    Description

      At some point before 4.2 we stopped including the merge sort in the explain output - I believe because the merge sort started happening within the $mergeCursors, which is not created nor displayed in explain output.

      We should somehow enhance the explain output to include the merge sort so that users don't mistakenly conclude that the merged output is not sorted.

       
      4.0:

      splitPipeline: {
        shardsPart: [
          {
            '$match': { mykey: { '$in': [ 0, 1, 3, 7 ] } }
          },
          { '$sort': { sortKey: { favColour: 1 }, limit: 5 } }
        ],
        mergerPart: [
          {
            '$sort': { sortKey: { favColour: 1 }, mergePresorted: true, limit: 5 }
          }
        ]
      }
      

      4.2/4.4:

       
      splitPipeline: {
        shardsPart: [
          {
            '$match': { mykey: { '$in': [ 0, 1, 3, 7 ] } }
          },
          { '$sort': { sortKey: { favColour: 1 }, limit: 5 } }
        ],
        mergerPart: [ { '$limit': 5 } ]
      }
