It is intended that the difference between single-node and multi-node  
cluster operation not be exposed to clients, to ensure that there are  
no single-node-only applications which don't scale to clustered  
operation. This means that "deployments where you are not doing  
replication" isn't a relevant distinction as far as the CouchDB model  
is concerned.

IMO this is a questionable decision, but I'm in the minority.

The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.
