Subject [jira] Created: (COUCHDB-124) Adding first and last sort keys

Adding first and last sort keys

                 Key: COUCHDB-124
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: HTTP Interface
            Reporter: Paul Joseph Davis

We should add values to the view query that are guranteed to be sorted first or last.

Simple example, given an emitted key of something like [doc.tag, doc.descr] currently to get
the data for a specific tag we would use something like:

startkey=['tag_name']&endkey=['tag_name', 'ZZZZZZ'] which is a bit hackish at best.

Perhaps startkey=['tag_name',_first_]&endkey=['tag_name',_last_]

Obviously _first_ and _last_ are crappy. And _first_ would even be optional. But hopefully
that conveys the idea.
