Be very wary of yourself when you think such things. Generally its a
sign (at least for me) that you're not realizing how deeply your SQL
brainwashing runs. And generally when I get to this point if I just
step back I realize there's probably a decent way to do it with couch.

Though, in this particular case you have come to a somewhat lacking
area of couch in its ability to handle dynamic queries as such.

And, just a thought, whenever multiget and include_docs lands, you'd
be able to do this pretty easily as:

get set of documents for tag
for rest of tags:
    multiget set of documents where other tag

it'd be an iterative weeding out of docs.

At least. I think that'd work....
