I think this change might be a reflection of my wiki edit of the
InstallMacOsX page yesterday, so I thought I comment.

The plist does not sport the OnDemand key, so by default
launchd will try to keep it running. The "start" part should not
be necessary. It does not harm either.

One confusing thing with the macports install is that there
is a huge user message in the terminal output which advertises
a plist generated by mp. That does not work, unfortunately.
The one that couchdb brings itself is fine.

I have filed a bug at mp for that:

Another inconvenience with the port is that if you forget
to install it with +server variant first, then uninstall, then reinstall,
then you end up with broken file permissions.

Other than that the port works fine for me and the test do all
