Thanks, got it working. This is good stuff.

Hmm, I don't follow. I have a doc for user foobar with "_id:foobar".
If I had a second type of document, say one type with user's blog
posts and another with comments by same user, then do you mean I'd
need to add a field unique to usernames because the ID has already
been used?

Isn't the sticking point with update handlers that I have to know the
ID, so I could only use this method for one type of document, namely
those where doc ID is username?
