There is currently no way to do that. I have a work-in-progress
branch[1] to address that in a fairly crude manner, but it only works
for $(format-json) at the moment. It should be fairly easy to take that
branch forward and add MongoDB support too. I may do that later today,
but I only have resources to prepare a proof of concept patch, can't
clean it up and submit it properly.
