I was also thinking that being able to reference views as well as
documents would be very useful.  Following on from the "_document"
implementation I was thinking something like:


        { "_view": "_design/mydesign/_view/myview?startkey=foo" }


might work.

I do like the option to put the documents in situ with a maxdepth
parameter though.

Would we also like to be able to link to documents/views in other
databases (either on the same server or remote...)?


P.S. This discussion should probably be kicked over to the dev list.
