I think the view server is blocked either way with the current protocol, no?

Either way we're waiting for a response from couch to call back into
JS, it's just whether we're calling the original function or the
I don't have a strong preference either way, but I do slightly favor
the callback continuation as a mild style preference.

In either case, do we have to add some new response format so the
query server can say "Hey call me again and tell me what to do with
this result?"
In other words, both of our suggestions can work on top of the same
change that needs to happen to the view server line protocol, so you
can code up either one and we can settle on what it should look like
to people writing update handlers later, no?
