You don't need to create a view for each keyword. Just create a view that emits for every

Use a map function like this:

function(doc) {
	doc.keywords.forEach(function(keyword) {
		emit(keyword, null);

Sounds more complex and less performant to me.

Anyway, I suggest checking out couchdb-lucene at this point. It's pretty easy and proven technology.
If multiviews prove to work and get merged into CouchDB, that might be a better choice in
the future for this use case. Note that couchdb-lucene can do much more than AND-queries though.
