Riak Search 2.0 & Tagging

Hello Antonio, 

You can insert an object and tag in the same operation, and you can query on that tag via Riak Search.

Before writing the object, just apply/set the metadata accordingly. Here’s an example in the Erlang client: https://github.com/basho/riak-erlang-client/blob/7487c90275c88dbe8ef4c2fed6540864364ca3d4/src/riakc_pb_socket.erl#L3348 <https://github.com/basho/riak-erlang-client/blob/7487c90275c88dbe8ef4c2fed6540864364ca3d4/src/riakc_pb_socket.erl#L3348>. 

Also, this can be done via http: https://github.com/basho/yokozuna/blob/5868266b11f131d14c85495e50f899f3fe8158ba/riak_test/yokozuna_essential.erl#L281 <https://github.com/basho/yokozuna/blob/5868266b11f131d14c85495e50f899f3fe8158ba/riak_test/yokozuna_essential.erl#L281>.
