$geoWithin querying and geolocation position data type

Corporate websites and retail platforms often have retail locations that are stored as lat/lng values and need lookup. It would be great if there was a new data type called "Location" that lets you mark a position and the coordinates can be exposed via back-end.

My understanding is that Builder uses Mongo expressions on the back-end which gives us access to its operators so having @geoWithin might then give us the ability to perform basic lookups.

This would give Builder the ability to house data to power this use case.
