Interesting.  I'd certainly consider this another level further than
what I was thinking of, or indeed would be thinking of using.  There
is probably a few levels where couch functionality could be exposed
natively.

I wonder how much doing this kind of bypassing for a native erlang
view engine would complicate the code?  Or would it give another clean
layer?
