Your patch looks good to me - haven't applied it yet but it seems
right. Seeing the unit tests would make it quite clear how to interact
with it. For instance, it may be that POSTing to the view url needs
more flexibility than just an array of keys. In that case, maybe
having the post body look like:

{"keys":["key1","key2","key3"]} rather than just ["key1","key2","key3"]

would be more flexible going forward.

Having some unit tests around the interaction with the MultiKeys and
Count, SkipCount, and StartDocId params would also be helpful I think.

Good work and thanks for the patch!
