Riyad Kalla commented on COUCHDB-1302:
--------------------------------------

Now is the perfect opportunity to make this change, once 1.2/2.0 goes out the door it likely
couldn't be safely addressed again until 3.0 and the uptake in CouchDB (from what I see at
least) seems to be on the rapid rise.

Making this change in 1.2/2.0 becomes an education issue, so maybe some questions around how
to be *really* helpful explaining the situation to the user, e.g. errors in the server log
when the problem is encountered and exactly how to work around it pointing at a Wiki page
with clarification explaining why; maybe warnings during startup when the server does a quick
scan for the issue (that can be disabled if the user knows they have a good setup); 

Sure it will be painful, but trying to monkey-patch this until 3.0 (or beyond) will be much
more painful and have a lot more negative impact by that time.

I like Jason's suggestion of some quick-patch tool that might ship with the install that attempts
the fix automatically or at least gives the users enough tools and help/information so as
to get them from Point A to B as quickly as possible.
