My use case for full-text searching is a little different from the
process described here. I'd like to be able to use CouchDB's map
functions to create views, and run full-text searches against the view
keys. Eg: I'd like to search just across, say, the titles of any
documents which have a title attribute.

Will this be supported? Perhaps I am just missing something - it seems
possible to configure Lucene to run a view-like function on the
document before indexing. But to me it seems that view keys are an
ideal way to set up an index for full-text searching.

Just a couple of cents from my application's perspective.
