No, views cannot take parameters. This is because they are built up-front,
and updated incrementally thereafter. That is, the view exists independently
of the queries which are subsequently made against it.

One option is to have a view which outputs keys in whatever the smallest
range is you want to support, say 1 minute buckets. Then you can combine
them into N-minute buckets client-side, or inside a _list function.
