[FoRK] Amazon S3 storage service

S3 has the API you'd expect -- buckets and objects with name/value
pairs for metadata -- but I found it a bit surprising that there
appears to be no way to filter listings by metadata values.

You can list a bucket's contents and filter by prefix text, but that's
quite limited.   I could see the need to search by several criteria,
which would be hard to achieve by wedging values into the object

Pretty minor complaint, of course.
