views are processed in batch, so all functions in a design doc are calculated together. so
don't worry about having lots of views.

still, it helps to keep views compact, so only emit what you need from each view, even if
you have many views. (I break this rule all the time).

mostly, relax about how to store it, and the just write whatever views get you want you need.
