I think you mean synchronously? The current behavior is async.

It is hard to test that stuff. Let us know what you come up with.

Ordinarily patches like this need to come through Jira. I'd apply it
but I think you can get the synchronous behavior without the patch.
See these docs:

If this doesn't work for your purposes, I'd be happy to accept the
patch, but it'd be nice if it made the async option available across
all CouchDB Ajax calls.
