Subject Re: include_docs vs emit("somekey", doc)
Date Thu, 11 Feb 2010 04:50:03 GMT
@Chris - I think maybe you misunderstood? I'm emitting the doc as the value,
not the key. Do your comments hold true for the value too?

@David - Why would emitting null as the document be faster? To be clear, I'm
asking about how long it takes to query against a view with include_docs vs
one that emits the document as the value, not how long it takes to build

Thanks Guys
