Hi, Mathieu.  I think a good place to start might be reading another
recent thread on this list about "Integrating Riak":

Specifically, Sean Cribb's suggestion near the end of the thread,
about using -pz and -s options in Riak's vm.args configuration, will
likely give you the best flexibility in developing so closely to Riak.
