It's awesome that you are digging into this! I was thinking about the
fulltext_options schema, and it seems it could be simplified a little
by restricting the options for the "return" value to either "document"
or "view". Otherwise surely people will also want to return the
view-key after indexing the value, or other permutations. If it's just
the view row (key and value, as returned from a standard view query),
or the whole document, then any code which is designed to work with
standard CouchDB queries will be able to consume fulltext results as

Can't wait to play with it.
