Issue with Link Queries

While running your example, I've discovered a few bugs related to this 
that I'll be documenting.

1) returnbody=true when PUT/POSTing an object doesn't return the correct 
content-type (text/plain).
2) A "follow anything" link query doesn't work. Specifying a bucket or 
tag will return results, however.

For making your Ruby code simpler, here's a few tips.

1) You can convert an object directly into a link with a tag: 
new_one.to_link("parent") would work for your example.
2) Instead of crafting a map/reduce job for link-walking, just do 
new_to.walk, which takes any number of WalkSpecs (or parameters that can 
be converted into walkspecs):
