> CouchDB currently uses libcurl only in couchjs to expose HTTP client functions to the
JavaScript environment. This functionality is used by the JavaScript unit tests. For idempotent
views it is discouraged to perform I/O in a view function. Therefore, I propose that libcurl
be made an optional dependency, automatically detected at build time, and a flag added to
couchjs so it can be explicitly enabled in the unit tests (but disabled, by default, for the
query server).
