Ah. In that case, I'm a bit confused. What does this have to do with 
LiveCode if you're not trying to tie into the existing functions?

 From my brief scanning of the rethinkdb website, I don't think it would 
make a big difference. All the heavy lifting is being done by the 
database itself. You'd just be sending data back and forth over a socket 
connection between LC and the database app. I just spent about a half 
hour with this and fwiw I'm communicating with the rethinkdb server.

No, nothing to do with RethinkDB itself. Sorry if I gave that impression.
