Support hierarchical facets

Searching in a hierarchy is very common.
E.g. Cars/Ford/Accessories

        @Vanessa, don't even bother with Azure search. If they have not done it by now they not going to do it.

        Any updates on this? I tried a very similar approach to the one outlined in the blogpost that you provided and the performance degradation becomes tremendous when you have a scenario like year/make/model/partType of thousands of auto parts.

        And since there is no top level category that we can use (like in the bikes--> mountain bike) scenario of the blog we really don't have good ways to address this (except for using a separate solution for facets like a Redis data store)
