Subject Re: View for multiple IDs

You definitely want to POST the keys to the view. Looping over the
entire view in a list function slows down noticeably for a large
number of documents.

To get the docs with the 3 keys mentioned in your example, you could
do something like this.

curl -X POST -d '{"keys": ["asdf", "powsf", "aaaa"]}' -H
'Content-Type: application/json'
