Subject Re: Migration to CouchDB

IMHO it's not necessarily a good idea to directly import data from an
SQL database to CouchDB.

Properly normalized data, in an SQL database, is generally
deconstructed into many records and tables that can be JOIN'ed
together. CouchDB on the other hand, will serve you well if you can
manage your data as coherent, self-sufficient documents.

I'm sure you can get plenty of data modeling help if you post
questions to the User mailing list.
