Ooh shiny!

My real underlying goal was to have CouchDB available on iPhone so I  
could make apps that can store local data and then effortlessly  
replicate to the "big database in the sky".

Right now, that's probably not possible due to AppStore restrictions.  
But even using Scala won't help there, there's no JVM on iPhone  
either :) Android has it though.
