Subject Re: feasibility of a design doc option to use the "ddoc new"/"ddoc <id>" based protocol for map and reduce as well
Date Tue, 28 Feb 2012 02:52:48 GMT
I believe the situation is that those functions are not given any
information that could change the results of map() and reduce().

{ "_id": "_design/example"
, "multiply": 50
, "views":
  { "a_view":
    { "map":
      "function(D) { emit(D._id, D.value * this.multiply"

Changing .multiply would not invalidate the view signature but it should.
