Soon in Riak: Secondary Indices

Basho is presenting Secondary Indices for Riak later this summer on OSCON. This discussion thread contains more details, and outlines the main functionality:
You tell the system how to index an object by "tagging" it with field/value pairs. The tags are passed to Riak via object metadata, currently sent via HTTP headers. (...) We're initially targeting a SQL-ish type language for querying, with support for exact match and range queries.
This looks promising!
