    Description

      Giving the fact that document in a context of a tree seems for linear searches (the document with the lower Price from this node to inside) materialized paths seems to me the best+simplest way to achieve this linear goal

      Will be key, in that sense, to convert in atomic something like:

      db.nodes.remove({'Path': {$regex: '^Path:to:the:node'}}) to remove a node and its childs
      and
      db.nodes.update({'Path': {%regex: '^Path:to:the:node'}}, {'Path' {$replace: {'^Path:to:the:node', 'New:path'}}) to rename a node and put the new path to all its childs

      Perhaps the syntax needs to be redefined

      This two operations are so trivial but so crucial in the sense of the tree that seems pretty interessant as future features
      And my intuition says will not be so much painful to implement for the size (so big for me) of the win you obtain

      Hope you share my point and decide to implement it

      Thanks!
