I'm thinking of removing the _all_docs_by_seq HTTP view and replacing  
it with something that will allow for more flexibility and also allow  
for Comet like events, by providing a filter function that finds  
documents that meet a criteria, and to be notified immediately when  
new documents are saved that meet that criteria. This is meant to be  
used by the replicator and external indexers, but to also try to make  
it be like a regular view and while supporting all the other stuff is  
pointlessly complex.
