    This is great. Pity I have to use server-side programming. Server-side programming is the devil for a number of reasons.
    It would be great if DocumentDB supported transactions without the need for stored procedure.

    Amazing functionality Andrew, thanks for sharing.
    Writing Stored Procedures with JavaScript will be a pain for service engineers with little front-end skills though.. but I love it :)
