Ah right, hadn't thought of that. So in a system using replication, 
views that would use the sequence number as a key would get a severe 
performance penalty? (Just checking to see if I understand the 
implications.) That might be a good enough reason not to expose this as 
a feature, lest people start depending on it and saying CouchDb is slow 
as a result.

If this is true, I suppose it also holds for the built in 
_all_docs_by_seq view?
