Check out the CouchApp script, which has macros for including helper
code automatically in view functions when saving the design documents.
This is really the best way to do it, as the functions as stored in
the design doc can not depend on definitions elsewhere in the code. If
there are a set of helpers you'd like to see as sort of a standard
library for MapReduce, they'd make great candidates for inclusion in
the CouchApp vendor package.

Scan the README for mention of the !code macro:
