I'd say postpone. Adam's replication patches don't change the API, so
they aren't an issue for client libraries, but both moving the _view
endpoint to within the design doc path, and Damien's changes to the
behavior of bulk_docs, will effect client libraries.

If we can avoid making a release with APIs that are already
deprecated, I think it's worth the wait. Alternatively, we could wait
on Damien's branch (as it still requires some testing, and changes
CouchDB in a more fundamental way, but one that has less impact on
client libraries) but I'd be against doing a release without the
design doc resources patch. We've never had a release with show/list,
so doing one with a deprecated API places an unnecessary burden on
client and application developers, who will probably have to support
0.9.0 for a while.
