If you just want return the user favorites of course, you can just emit userId as key and eventId
as value, but if you want show them ordered by timestamp (events belong in time), you must
include the timestamp in the key: emit([userId, timestamp], eventId). That because in CouchDB
the query results are _always_ ordered key.
