The "FUQ" page has been changed by RandallLeeds:
http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/FUQ?action=diff&rev1=5&rev2=6

Comment:
Removed mention of transactional behavior.

  
   1. What is the benefit of using the _bulk_docs API instead of PUTting single documents
to CouchDB?
  
-     Aside from the HTTP overhead and roundtrip you are saving, the main advantage is that
CouchDB can handle the B tree updates more efficiently, decreasing rewriting of intermediary
and parent nodes, both improving speed and saving disk space. _bulk_docs also allows you to
treat multiple documents in a single phase, either applying all or none of them if so chosen.

   1. Why can't I use MVCC in CouchDB as a revision control system for my docs?
