Estimated Filtered Count
We are currently using a pattern where we use a find(query).limit(x) and a count(query) with $near to find x results and display the overall count. Using this pattern, we are able to pass the same query to find and count. However that count method was removed in SCALA-517 and replaced by estimatedDocumentCount and countDocuments. The problem is that countDocuments will not work with $near. There is a workaround to use $geowithin with $center/$centerSphere, however this doesn't return the results sorted as $near did. We would like to have the option to pass the same query to count as we do to our find, even if there are risks associated as there was with count, an estimatedDocumentCount or unSafeCount, if you will, that accepts the same filter as our query.
