Bikeshed alert: I'd mirror what the CouchDB source distro does:

~/Library/Application Support/CouchDB/etc/default.d/
~/Library/Application Support/CouchDB/etc/default.ini
~/Library/Application Support/CouchDB/etc/local.d/
~/Library/Application Support/CouchDB/etc/local.ini

I'd be more than happy to ship whatever is there today and
fix this down the road. If it is easy to fix (see below),
we may as well do that too.

We may want to revisit this based on a close reading of the
AppStore submission guidelines, when we get to that, but until
then, I believe that is fine.

I'd drop "-server" and go with just "couchdb.log"

Great news! :) If you want to/can compile a new one
(and if the paths above are easy to adjust), then 
I'd say let's get that right and then ship.

And then improve on all the other things that have
been mentioned in this thread.

Thanks all for pushing this along! :)

Cheers
Jan
