Hi Jens,
thanks for this - makes sense.
To continue on this path, so if I have separate document types, where 
docTypeA has a reference to docTypeB, can I have a view that returns a 
docTypeA based on a value within docTypeB object? My feeling from the 
docs I have seen is "no".
Also, my view returns a list of key, values. And I can use the eg key 
parameter to return a particular key, value. I can also use the keys 
parameter to return more than one particular key. But can I return a 
document based on more than one field.
What I mean is if a document type is defined as
    id: xxxx,
    fname: fred,
    lname: smith,
    dob: 01/01/2001
The view can emit a key of "doc.fname, doc.lname" but can I search on 
"fred" and "smith"? I could combine the two and search on "fredsmith" I 
guess. But, moving away from a name, it was two towns, then they could 
be any order eg "london-leeds" or "leeds-london". Again, the could be 
combined but can a doc be emitted twice eg emit called twice?
Sorry this is all a bit confused, and the examples are not great but 
hopefully the general question is getting over.
