How to index across entities?

RavenDB allows you to easily index a single entity by specifying:

from user in docs.Users
select new { user.Name}

But what happen if you want to index Users or Employees? You can do that easily enough using:

from doc in docs
let entityName = doc["@metadata"]["Raven-Entity-Name"]
where entityName == "Users" || entityName == "Employees"
select new { doc.Name }

This method allow you to index all users and all employees in the same index, and queries on this index will be able to find either type of documents.
