> It is often convenient to reverse proxy CouchDB at a url like /couch.  Unfortunately,
while CouchDB will work perfectly in this situation, Futon cannot handle it as jquery.couch.js
uses absolute URLs to access all CouchDB functions.
> I've attached a small patch that fixes this problem by:
> 1. Adding a urlPrefix attribute to $.couch which it uses to construct its URLs.
> 2. Adding logic to the futon.js constructor that figures out a suitable prefix and sets
$.couch.urlPrefix to use this.
> Any client code that makes use of $.couch will need to do something similar.  Since only
the application and the adminstrator will know what the prefix should be or how to deduce
it, I didn't really know of a better way to handle this.
