Subject RE: Doubts with start and end keys + descending=true

You quite literally need to flip your startkey and endkey, so you'll need to query with ?startkey=[%22arg%22,{}]&endkey=[%22mex%22]&descending=true

Now the descending parameter is working but I'm still not having the
expected result.

For example:

1. Results from arg to mex in ascending mode.[%22arg%22]&endkey=[%22mex%22,{}]

the result have arg,chl and mex keys. That's ok!

2. Now flipping. Results from mex to arg in descending mode.[%22mex%22]&endkey=[%22arg%22,{}]&descending=true

the result have only keys = "chl". That isn't ok, I was expecting mex, chl
and arg in the descending mode.

Other Example:

1. Results with keys = arg[%22arg%22]&endkey=[%22arg%22,{}]

the result is a list with key = arg. That's ok![%22arg%22]&endkey=[%22arg%22,{}]&descending=true

In this example I can't just flip the key values once I'm filtering only one
key value "arg"
the result is a empty list with. That isn't ok, I was expecting a key="arg"
list in the descending mode
