Subject Re: Adding attributes to a document in the view?
Date Thu, 18 Dec 2008 16:50:49 GMT
What Chris said.  Also, if you're expecting any attributes you add to
the document to be saved to the database that'll never happen. Views
need to satisfy some properties to ensure that views can be
incrementally computed. Adding attributes in a view would be a sure
fire way to start breaking these requirements.
