Hi all,

thanks for the great feedback.

If I do:

emit([a_name, one_id, another_id, created_at]);

I can query it with (reduce just being the built in _count)


and by that get the dictionary I wanted:

  "Lisa" : 1
  "John" : 3

I know need to make the start and endkey parameters ignore the first 
element of my key as a_name is not a search parameter. I've tried with 
this search for one_id=1, another_id=2 and date between 2011-05-26 and 


But don't get anything returned. Am I doing this wrong? Is there a 
different way to make the view ignore the first element of the key? In 
the coucdb.log I can see that my query parameters enter Couch the way I 
intended (no BASH escaping going astray).
