Sorry for the double reply - you also do not want to be calling
`createBucket()` every time. This fetches/sends the bucket information
from/to Riak. You want to create the `Bucket` object once then pass it
around. If that's not possible due to how you have written your code,
use the `fetchBucket()` instead along with
`lazyLoadBucketProperties()` so as not to be querying the bucket
parameters each time.
