geocouch (at least the version I pulled) is using the new file
improvements couch_file:flush, so I had to use couchbase source, this
is the only real change though, I had to change
couch_httpd_db:couch_doc_open to be compatible with couchbase,  but
that is easy to switch back.

I will put a patch into GDAL for the couchdb driver so that it can run
without raising an error when geocouch isn't used, ideally though you
would always use geocouch, it is faster.
