The idea is the same in Riak (like mentioned in the announcement),
they provide an option to use javascript for map/reduce
implementation. Same here: implement "reduce" logic in javascript.

However, I fail to see the reason why this might be useful in this
case, as I cannot see any REST API, and reduce functions are quite
expensive (thus I imply there is no notion of "request", where you can
implement your match/reduce functions).
