  A JSON structure of ''{"keys": ["key1", "key2", ...]}'' can be posted to any user defined
view or ''_all_docs'' to retrieve just the view rows matching that set of keys. Rows are returned
in the order of the keys specified. Combining this feature with ''include_docs=true'' results
in the so-called ''multi-document-fetch'' feature.
  
- If you specify ''?count=0'' you don't get any data, but all meta-data for this View. The
number of documents in this View for example.

  The ''skip'' option should only be used with small values, as skipping a large range of
documents this way is inefficient (it scans the index from the startkey and then skips N elements,
but still needs to read all the index values to do that). For efficient paging use ''startkey''
and/or ''startkey_docid''.
