riakc doesn't save metadata properly?

Hello Metin -

  Sorry for the delay. At the moment, all metadata needs to be stored
under the <<"X-Riak-Meta">> dict key. The following example
illustrates how this works:

%% To store metadata:
Object = riakc_obj:new(<<"groceries">>, <<"mine">>, <<"eggs & bacon">>).
MetaData  = dict:from_list([{<<"X-Riak-Meta">>, [{"Foo", "Bar"}]}]),
Object2 = riakc_obj:update_metadata(Object, MetaData).
riakc_pb_socket:put(Pid, Object2).

%% To retrieve metadata:
{ok, O} = riakc_pb_socket:get(Pid, <<"groceries">>, <<"mine">>).
{ok, MD} = dict:find(<<"X-Riak-Meta">>, riakc_obj:get_metadata(O)).

We're kicking around ways to improve this in the future.

Cheers -
