Yes, the key is to remember that no matter how clever you get, views are 
ultimately a one-dimensional representation of your data.  If you need 
queries on more than one variable, you will need multiple queries 
against multiple views, or perhaps take another route like 
couchdb-lucene, which is quite nice.
