alongside the aforementioned design and attachment path slash rules.

Antony, I think you'll find that once you've written the appropriate
JavaScript tests for this feature, it'll be hard to resist adding
escaping to the Erlang db-name validation code. Once we've got that
patch and it works well, expanding the coverage to include design_doc
names should be a no brainer.

Thanks for taking this up!
