>             Project: CouchDB
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: HTTP Interface
>    Affects Versions: 1.0.2, 1.1
>            Reporter: Mounir Lamouri
>            Priority: Blocker
> CORS editor draft [1] requests that for non-simple HTTP requests (like PUT or DELETE
methods), the OPTIONS method should be used to know if those methods are allowed by the server
[2]. If the server returns a status code different than 200, the User Agent should consider
the request as not allowed thus shouldn't do the original request (with PUT or DELETE methods).
> Gecko/Firefox is following this draft which makes CouchDB not accessible cross-domain
with Firefox and all Gecko-based browsers. In addition, given that this is a behavior requested
per specs, CouchDB will not work cross-domain with all future User Agent following it.
> Tested with 1.0.2 and 1.1.0
> [1]
> [2] See 7.1.5 "Cross-Origin Request with Preflight",
