That would imply that a couch app  is just a simple HTML5 apps. People
tend to not use sometimes shows and lists, but this just because we
are for now using an inefficient way to handle the javascript
evaluation. This is something from the past and I don't want that we
live in the past. At the boston summit it was the same reaction people
think couchapps as something frozen that can't be improved.

Imo the couchapp fs should represent the ddoc structure. So it will be
easy to extend the features later. And improve the one that are
inefficient right now. And I do think that couchapps should be more
than simple and limited html5 apps. It's important imo to improve
current features and add new one. For example having the possibility
to use the couchapps at the server level. Just like redis script for
example. etc.
