Indeed, allow_mult is a per-bucket parameter.  From your riak shell:

1> {ok, C} = riak:local_client().
2> C:set_bucket(<<"my_bucket">>, [{allow_mult, true}]).

The above will set allow_mult for just the <<"my_bucket">> bucket.

Ask and you shall receive.  If you pull down the tip of the bitbucket
repository as of late this morning*, you'll find the raw_http_resource
included.  Read riak/doc/raw-http-howto.txt for a primer.
