Simply query for startkey=["A","B","c6","2010-09-01"]&endkey=["A","B","c6","2010-09-32"]

Oh I see. Yeah you can't do that unless you use multi_views which are in development.

Basically you have a 2-dimensional search space (path and time) and you're cheating your way
into 1-dimensionality by preparing all the possible 2-dimensional queries you might ask. That
works but it costs you disk space obviously.
