Hello devs,

now that I created the Jira ticket, please tell me if I can be of any help in getting this
integrated in CouchDB.

to have a "strong admin interface" that can run in any browser, and my present code that is
more a "cool thing" than something the couch users can't live without. My next proposal proposal
would have been to make a "switch to designer" button  appear on the database.html page if
the current browser support html5....

That would be the one, but there's an easier way. If you could 
upload your code (as a zip file or a patch) to JIRA now, there's
a checkbox you can tick that is equivalent to signing a CLA for 
a contribution like this. Once that is done, we can work on 
integrating it into Futon proper. I'd suggest that this is the easiest 
way forward :)

A CLA is only really needed for committers.

Mikeal, thanks for offering to look through this!
