Subject Re: Conditional joins

Simon,
I think this is a case where the flat document structure of couch documents
makes things much simpler than in SQL.

If you had a view like this:
function(doc){if(doc.type=='user'){emit(doc.status,doc)}
then it would return all the user documents with their status as their key
and you could use ?key="1" (i think the quotes are necessary) to get all the
users whose status is 1

if you want to do the same thing for domains, you just write a "domain" view
that returns status as the key
