Primarily, mine is a request that that the feature (versioned
_security) be generally useful. Seems a shame to put work into
_security features when people want local per-db metadata for many
reasons.

Even today, you can read _security, so it's fine for you to read
_local/security.

But on write, yes, CouchDB gets "dirty." But couch always reacts to
underscore stuff. If it were _local/_security would that be ok? :)

Just hoping to move away from one-off URLs to provide features.
