Woo hoo!

count -> limit sounds simple enough.

Perhaps if you wrote up in English what the replication security
requirements are, someone else could add the tests.

I'll say that I'm quite happy with the reduce/rereduce API as it
currently stands.

However, I'd like to make sure that there is room for some stock
Erlang reduce functions to be available without a Javascript function
definition. For starters reduce=row_count and reduce=sum would both be
handy for a lot of applications, and implementing them as Erlang would
mean that group=true queries would be fast. I think these features can
be added in the future without breaking compatibility with existing
libraries, so they don't need to happen now, but I wanted to bring it
up in case there's something I'm not seeing.
