11) jlouis, hemulen and ericflo had a very short convo that started
with, "A bucket has 868497 keys in it. Is there a way to run a mapred
query over
the whole bucket without calling list_keys(Bucket) first to generate a
list of size 868497 and then consume it straight after? "

Gist here --- >http://gist.github.com/654659

12) notbehn, ericflo and technoweenie had a quick exchange about what
links can do in Riak.
