Oh. That won't work, since map and reduce functions should always give  
the same answer for a given set of documents.

You can output different results for predefined questions, because the  
key of the view can be an array. For example, you could sort on last  
name and first name in the same view by emitting ([0,doc.first],doc)  
and ([1,doc.last],doc) (although 2 views would be better).

Can't you give a very concrete example of what you're trying to achieve?
