Woah! Can we all please take a step back and talk about what problem this

Benoit, your work is *excellent* however on behalf of couchdb
administrators, I must say, these proposed vhost rules look complicated, and
difficult or impossible to support in a reverse-proxy environment.

What exactly is the problem that vhosts and _rewrite cannot solve?

I have no final opinion. However I think a CouchApp or Futon feature which
manages vhosts might be better, long-term, despite being more work to
implement at this time.
