Nothing concrete enough to share.  Mostly a desire to do it + a few
conversations about and experimentation with different ways it could
be done.

I should add that it would be simple for anyone comfortable with
writing a little bit of Erlang, to write a webmachine resource with
logic to execute the m/r queries they want, and to then add a dispatch
entry for that resource to Riak's webmachine configuration (defined in
riak_web:dispatch_table/0).  This would expose a way to do more m/r
over http, even if it weren't a full, general solution.
