I'm working on code to detect CouchApps, and adding it to Futon is the
first place I can think of to put it. I think once devs have had a
chance to file off the rough edges, we can think about another global
handler for users (maybe /_apps ?) that will list all end-user
friendly design docs that are available on a particular node.

Ideally this would be an HTML representation available at "/" but
currently we're using that path for node info.
