I think this would be very good to have. If it's really performance
sensitive, maybe making it optional would be useful.

But in practice, CouchDB already gets this correct some large

my application), so I think it would be pretty nice to have.

Adam, may I file an issue for you? I did try looking at the code
myself, but this code seems rather too involved for someone new at

BTW, some semi-related issue: would it be sensible to have an
include_docs option to changes feeds? Right now every line of the
continuous changes feed requires a doc fetch, it seems like a
no-brainer to have an option to just yield the doc along with the seq
