the ability to pull up 2 docs saves a view/list call with and a round trip.

Ultimately what gets committed to disk is the first entry in the array that
gets returned whatever it is.

But I do see your point I just thought it would be neat.... I may write a
plugin to do this because it seems pretty snazzy
That would violate our fundamental approach that a document stands alone
(that we make no promises about *other* documents contents or even
