It's hard to say when the full discussion would have taken place. The
decision to make the CouchDB API invariant no matter the number of
nodes supporting a database is basically what drew me to the project
in the first place.

I can't speak for the other committers, but I agree with the vision of
CouchDB as database that can scale to any number of host nodes while
presenting the same API to its clients.
