I like the link to JSON Pointer, Alexander, that's intriguing. Something
like that could be very useful for simple views, although the RFC is quite
vague on edge cases, ie how would you implement something like if (doc.type
== "foo") emit(, doc.baz) with JSON pointer. Speaking of JSON
pointer, looks like Jan beat us to the punch ;-)

Filippo, when you say DDL, how feature-ful are you envisioning?

I think the big idea is to get _something_ that functions inside the Erlang
VM securely and efficiently.
