Very interesting discussion. Maybe someone could tell the story of
what happens if you just use CouchDB, with it's weak consistency, and
don't bother even thinking about these issues. Is the naive approach
doomed? Does it suffice to tell the developers who have more relaxed
demands, "keep your documents independent - eg don't use multi-doc
transactions" or can consistency issues bite back in the single-doc
case as well?
