> It would be useful for auditing to have the identity of the user who inserted a new revision
and the timestamp of the operation to be inserted in the document in the same way that the
new revision number is.
> Doing this at the application level is not adequate since it would be readily spoofable
and would bypass the authentication handler.
> There is a comment in couch_db:update_docs about generating new revision ids, but I couldn't
quite comprehend what specific code was responsible for inserting the id into the document.
