So I'm the lucky fellow assigned to try to implement some of the
requests in this thread. I have some changes in the
az259-enhance-pbc-api branches on riak_kv and on the riak-erlang client:


Changes include conditional get [{if_modified, VClock}], conditional put
[if_none_match], [if_not_modified] and a way to get the metadata of an
object without its value; [head].

Let me know if this addresses some of the pain points and if there's
anything else missing. Bucket properties are one we already know about.
