fnv1a looks interesting. I hadn't heard of this hash but I see how
it'd be extremely fast and also easy to implement.

I hadn't really thought through the merkle thing, I just kinda spat
out words. I'll try not to do that in the future :-P

As far as how paranoid to be... we obviously don't want to do a full
table scan on writes, but could we afford a full table scan at startup
to verify that the view index hasn't been corrupted since couch was
last run?
