Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-1303) Add a _bulk_update handler similar to _update but for bulk document changes

Add a _bulk_update handler similar to _update but for bulk document changes

                 Key: COUCHDB-1303
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Benjamin Young

_update handlers are great (and getting better!) for building RESTful API's inside CouchDB.
One limitation I found tonight is that _update can only do a single document at a time. If
the API I'm building needs to update multiple docs (in a similar fashion to _bulk_docs), then
an outside "proxy" script is required. It would be ideal to have a _bulk_update handler to
allow for the same functionality as _update, but with the ability to insert multiple documents
at once.

Perhaps the current _update handler API could be extended to support multiple IDs/documents,
but a separate API endpoint would be seem reasonable if needed.

Thanks for considering this idea.
