I read most of the documentation, wiki and blogs, but I still do not  
see how to accomplish a certain scenario.  Hopefully I can describe it  

Lets say I have 1,000,000 documents [all of the same "type"] with a  
date attribute.  Lets say I want to pick a subset of those documents.   
How can I pick those documents of one type that fall on one day?  Will  
I need to get all 1,000,000 documents?  What if I want all documents  
of one type on one day that match another attribute?

I pretty sure this is what map/reduce will help with, but is there a  
way to do this now?  Can you use more documents to build date relations?

Also, can you pass more variables than just key to the view function?

Thank you,
