Future roadmap for indexed queries?

John, Riak allows you to cache mapreduce queries if you create them as  
named queries.  In a way, this kind of creates an index, because I  
think it works a bit like CouchDB where the caches are added to when  
there is new data.  I think Riak also has a similar query paradigm to  
CouchDB, which is dynamic data, static queries.  I may be completely  
wrong here, so feel free to correct me.
