My understanding is that we still want that and now that we switched  
to MochiWeb, it is actually feasible to work on it.

DbUpdateNotificationProcess is the name of that option, I don't think  
there were any changes, though.

The way that is t me the most sensible way to make that happen would  
require changes in CouchDB that are very likely not to go into 0.8.  
This would not change, but rather extend the view API so things should  
be backwards compatible (but maybe don't take my word for it, since we  
are still in discussions :) . Until then, indexers need to work around  
some of the limitations here, but can be simplified when CouchDB nears  

Thanks for your input, Matt,
